 	remaining users that setting this now does nothing.
 
+rebase.backend::
+	Default backend to use for rebasing.  Possible choices are
+	'am' or 'merge' (note that the merge backend is sometimes also
+	refered to as the interactive backend or the interactive
+	machinery elsewhere in the docs).  Also, in the future, if the
+	merge backend gains all remaining capabilities of the am
+	backend, this setting may become unused.
+
 rebase.stat::
 	Whether to show a diffstat of what changed upstream since the last
 	rebase. False by default.
