Like others have said, please, no. Squashed commits are the worst things to have in a git history. They make it hard to use git blame, they make it hard to read the history... And the whole argument about making life easier for drive-by contributors and newbies and people not familiar with git isn't to the point anyway: those people will make a fork, do their work, make a merge request, get that reviewed, and then the maintainer does the merge.
