(I did receive this mail.  Sorry for the inconvenience, which sadly is
inevitable occasionally in the modern email world.  FTR in future feel
free to send the bounce to postmaster@chiark and I will make a
you-shaped hole in my spamfilter.  Also with Debian bugs you can
launder your messages by, eg, emailing 914695-submitter@bugs.)

As I wrote in the bug report last night:

 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=914695#15

 I have investigated and the bug seems to be that git-rebase --onto now
 fails to honour GIT_REFLOG_ACTION for the initial checkout.

 In a successful run with older git I get a reflog like this:

   4833d74 HEAD@{0}: rebase finished: returning to refs/heads/with-preexisting
   4833d74 HEAD@{1}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Add another new upstream file
   cabd5ec HEAD@{2}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Edit the .c file
   0b362ce HEAD@{3}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Add a new upstream file
   29653e5 HEAD@{4}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: checkout 29653e5a17bee4ac23a68bba3e12bc1f52858ac3
   85e0c46 HEAD@{5}: debrebase: launder for new upstream

 With a newer git I get this:

   6d3fb91 HEAD@{0}: rebase finished: returning to refs/heads/master
   6d3fb91 HEAD@{1}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Add another new upstream file
   86c0721 HEAD@{2}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Edit the .c file
   50ba56c HEAD@{3}: debrebase new-upstream 2.1-1: rebase: Add a new upstream file
   8272825 HEAD@{4}: rebase: checkout 8272825bb4ff6eba89afa936e32b6460f963a36a
   c78db55 HEAD@{5}: debrebase: launder for new upstream

 This breaks the test because my test suite is checking that I set
 GIT_REFLOG_ACTION appropriately.

 If you want I can provide a minimal test case but this should suffice
 to see the bug I hope...

Regards
Ian.
