You can't do a cherry pick or rebase through the front-end. I think adding
this 'merge pull request' commit is a good idea, since it shows more
information about where the commit came from.
But if you want, you can use 'git rebase' to avoid the merge commit. In the
case of my 'gitignore' branch, you could have run the following commands:
git remote add ndbroadbent git://
git fetch ndbroadbent
git rebase ndbroadbent/gitignore
git remote rm ndbroadbent
