No.

I'm not pulling this useless commit message:

"Merge tag 'v4.20-rc1'"

with absolutely _zero_ explanation for why that merge was done.

Guys, stop doing this. Because I will stop pulling them.

If you can't be bothered to explain exactly why you're doing a merge,
I can't be bothered to pull the result.

Commit messages are important. They explain why something was done.
Merge commits are to some degree *more* important, because they do odd
things and the reason is not obvious from the code ("Oh, it's a
oneliner obvious fix").

So merge commits without a reason for them are simply not acceptable.
