I used the "Automatic merge" button on my own pull request on
github, but afterwards discovered that it uses --no-ff, so my single
commit also resulted in a "merge" commit:
Should I try to get rid of that merge? If so, how? (The git book
is by my side, but I suspect an answer will show up here faster than
I can find it.)
No, it's public now so you shouldn't touch it anymore.
That button is very pointless - best to ignore it.
