Re: [cdt-dev] [egit-dev] Pull vs. Rebase

Currently the pull strategy can be configured when creating a new local branch based on a remote

pull will do fetch + rebase (local branch onto updated remote tracking branch). 

It looks like this option only exists when creating a branch.  I couldn't figure out how to change it for an existing branch (master), or while using the File > Import > Git wizard.

If you want the default pull strategy to be configurable we could add support for the 
git config parameter branch.autosetuprebase [2].
