Improve merge train settings to match new merge strategy options
Problem to solve
Based on the following decision in &7705 (comment 871768696)
In today's group meeting we all jointly decided for the incremental introduction of this feature starting with introduction of proper squash without merge commit followed by allowing more freedom of choice at time of merging. We also think we should introduce the first features with feature flags giving users a choice to try these out before this is fully implemented without forcing the incremental changes on all customers.
this issue would focus on the CI POV and develop a solution of the interaction of merge train and merge settings.
Personas are described at https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/marketing/product-marketing/roles-personas/
Increased MAU for Merge trains
User experience goal
Based on the change in layout for the merge strategy and check in epic &7705, improve how we present the setting for merge trains in relation to other merge settings for a more intuitive configuration option for users.
