Perhaps just prohibiting them on master is enough?

I checked, and yeah, this is what happens.

I think I can change that, if you want.

While I agree that we ought to adopt a more git-ish commit style, this
goes against my early plan of making as few "extra" change to our

for later, to avoid complicating the switchover.

I guess if enough people +1 the idea I will do it.
