I deliberately did a no-ff merge, yes. That in itself doesn’t diverge anything, but it does make a record that the merge happened.

As for “deliberately diverged”, that’s the whole point of having three branches. For example it allows us to merge https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash/pull/222 <https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash/pull/222> sooner than we’d otherwise be able to.
