^^^^^^^^^^^ instead of merge rebase your local branch.

e.g. git pull --rebase

This brings your local copy of master up to date and applies
your new commit on top, and you almost always have to fix up
the conflicts, then push again.

Almost, just changing 'git merge' => 'git pull --rebase' is
enough to rebase your local master branch and then apply your
commits on top (and let you fix the conflicts).

It's OK. I just wanted to make sure you didn't have some
very specific workflow needs.

I cannot be fixed. It is public history now, and public
history is immutable (and we never want to violate that
even if we can).
