I've seen several messages about pruning patch logs in the past, and now
that I have some development work that has > 100 logs, I'm thinking
about at least learning more about pruning. I haven't found anything on
the wiki, and only mentions of it on the mailing list...

Every branch carries around all of the patch-logs of everything that it
has been merged with. It is my understanding that this is what allows
star-merge to be so intelligent. When combined with stuff like
sync-tree, you can get star-merge to do almost exactly the right thing
with little effort.

So what I'm hoping to get is some sort of best practices for what should
be pruned versus what is kept. I'm worried that I'll lose a lot of what
I like about star-merge if I remove patch-logs.

My gut feeling is that unless it is really important, I shouldn't prune
any patch logs, and just live with the list getting longer and longer.
