With current git and proper merge logs you get useful info.
The headers contain the hashes, so you can get the list of
commits pulled by that merge.
The signed tag log is show.
And merge conflicts also are shown.
Based on the hashes in the Merge: header, you can use git log to see the
individual commits or git diff to see the whole picture at once.
Linus’ current tip is a good example:
git show 1193755ac632
So, Gentoo shouldn't prohibit merges. Instead, it should demand that
all merges be of signed tags.
The plan includes signed commits anyway, so signed tags for pulls will be
fully supported by any version of git which might be used.
