- Branch A is ahead of branch B
- Branch A and branch B diverged.
But, I always wondered how to get more information about that relationship. For example, if A is ahead of B -- by how many commits? Or if they diverged -- how many commits ago (from A, and from B). And what exactly commits are those?
So, I just wrote a simple python script which will find the response.
$ git relation master test-branch master is AHEAD of test-branch Commits from test-branch to master: 2176e45 Tomo Krajina git-multi in README, 18 hours ago 50b2f79 Tomo Krajina + README, 18 hours ago
Git relation is part of my git-plus repository: https://github.com/tkrajina/git-plus.
