Just as an alternative:

Instead of amending the commits, sometimes I double branch and squash
the merges back, e.g. (from memory):

$ git checkout Cog
$ git checkout -b IssueBranch
$ git checkout -b IssueBranchDev

Lots of little commits, backtracks, etc. while solving the problem.

$ git checkout IssueBranch
$ git merge --squash IssueBranchDev
$ git push

and then create the PR.

The advantage is that I still have the messy history available in
IssueBranchDev while I'm doing the development.
