Re: Emacs git repo mangled

Eglot's merge (0186faf2a1) is the first case in Emacs' history in which another root commit (1e5b753bf4) was added to the repository. So at the moment there is only one such command to type when starting a bisection: git bisect good 806734c1b1.

Wouldn't his mean that all other commits prior the eglot merge would be regarded as "good", when bisecting? I doubt this is what we want.

No, it means that all commits between Eglot's root (1e5b753bf4) and Eglot's merge (0186faf2a1), except Eglot's merge itself, are regarded as "good". IOW, git bisect will never "descend" into Eglot's branch, and only into that branch, which is exactly what we want.
