Merge branch 'sg/describe-contains'
"git describe" without argument defaulted to describe the HEAD commit, but "git describe --contains" didn't. Arguably, in a repository used for active development, such defaulting would not be very useful as the tip of branch is typically not tagged, but it is better to be consistent. * sg/describe-contains: describe --contains: default to HEAD when no commit-ish is given
