Why do I have to say this EVERY single release?

A conflict is not a reason to rebase. Conflicts happen. They happen a
lot. I deal with them, and it's usually trivial.

If you feel it's not trivial, just describe what the resolution is,
rather than rebasing. Really.

Rebasing for a random conflict (particularly in documentation, for
chrissake!) is like using an atomic bomb to swat a fly. You have all
those downsides, and there are basically _no_ upsides. It only makes
for more work for me because I have to re-write this email for the
millionth time, and that takes longer and is more aggravating than the
conflict would have taken to just sort out.
