We're in the process of switching from SVN to git, and I've noticed that we're seeing a lot of these commit messages in git:
Merge branch 'development' of [Url to Origin].
These are coming in where other developers are pulling down changes from remote, into their local repo, before they push their changes back into remote (I think, clarification would be great if not).
I just wanted to check that it's expected to see these messages in the remote, considering there's only 3 of us working on the project at the moment, but it seems like every other commit is one of these messages, making it a bit harder to gleam any useful information from the commit logs?
(Tagged as Visual Studio as I believe the message is auto-generated by VS when you use their IDE?)
