How do I ask git-show-branch to display a commit range?
For some tasks, I find
git show-branch easier to follow than
git log. For example, inspecting the history on someone's PR before merging it.
git show-branch master topic stops at the first common ancestor, which is usually not what I want. Usually I want to display the same commits that would have been covered by
git log master...topic, but in a
show-branch format. Sometimes the two are the same, but not always.
Is there an incantation that will do this?
[Edit]: After experimenting a bit, it looks like I only run into a problem if the tip of one branch is a merge of the other. For example, consider a history like this:
master *---*---A---B---* \ \ topic a---b---c---*
If I then do
git show-branch master topic, it doesn't include a, b, and c, even though those commits are not ancestors of master.
