I assume you're referring to this:

	http://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/

I mostly do use that flow, but in my experience, the number of merge
commits (as opposed to fast-forwards) are pretty low, since I highly
favour rebasing before ultimately merging with master, wherever possible.
It keeps history simple, and keeps my development in sync with the
lastest good code.
