Since Git 2.27 i get a warning when pulling.
hint: Pulling without specifying how to reconcile divergent branches is hint: discouraged. You can squelch this message by running one of the following hint: commands sometime before your next pull: hint: hint: git config pull.rebase false # merge (the default strategy) hint: git config pull.rebase true # rebase hint: git config pull.ff only # fast-forward only hint: hint: You can replace "git config" with "git config --global" to set a default hint: preference for all repositories. You can also pass --rebase, --no-rebase, hint: or --ff-only on the command line to override the configured default per hint: invocation.
When you do a git pull origin master, git pull performs a merge, which often creates a merge commit. Therefore, by default, pulling from the remote is NOT a harmless operation: it can create a new commit sha that didn’t exist before. This behavior can confuse a user, because what feels like it should be a harmless download operation actually changes the commit history in unpredictable ways. https://stackoverflow.com/a/62653400/531592
$ git pull --ff-only
or event better as a global default with
$ git config --global pull.ff only
