Re: How to change the default "Squash & Merge" commit message?

When using GitHub pull request template, it does not make much sense to use description nor does it make sense to get a list of all the commits.

I would love it if I can just to the default behavior to be blank!

Perhaps something configurable in the .github folder?

 

Or once GitHub workflow becomes publically available, I can automate the behavior myself.

I would totally love to be able to automatically disregard commit history message in squashed commit - now we are forced to do that with every merge!

For my use case, even just a checkbox option that lets you treat all PRs as if they have multiple-commits would suffice.

I made a browser extension to use the PR description as the squash and merge commit message.

Re: How to change the default "Squash & Merge" commit message?

This may be a tad different than what's requested but the simple ability to edit the commit message would be great. We use a tool to generate release notes from our commit log and it's messy if a PR has multiple commits and not all the commit messages were written correctly. The squash & merge just concatenates all the messages but it would be nice to be able to pick one.

Would greatly appreciate if this is implemented.
