I really prefer to manually organize all my commits in a branch instead of squashing them all into one based on a PR, but it's a battle I lost long ago on seemingly every client project.

@edwardloveall I love having loads of tiny, well prepared commits. If there’s a particularly odd change I need to make in order to achieve the main aim of a PR I’ll try to put that in it’s own commit with tonnes of explanation in the message. Others can then query the log for context about the strange thing. GitHub will show a link to the PR in the web IU for that commit too, so it’s all gravy.
