How can I make pull do a "git pull --rebase -p" by default... i.e. specify the -p flag after selecting the rebase by default option.

I've changed my settings to do a rebase instead of a merge when pulling, however it seems a lot safer to me to also use the "-p" flag. Can this be added so that it's the default for a merge? If not, how might I add this myself? Thanks!

According to the git manual, the -p option (--preserve-merges) to rebase is only usable in interactive mode: http://linux.die.net/man/1/git-rebase. Therefore it's not really usable from SourceTree. It might be safer for you to not use the rebase option by default if you have merges you want to preserve.

Thanks! Makes sense.
