git-merge-base/git-show-branch --merge-base: Documentation and test
Currently, the documentation suggests that 'git merge-base -a' and 'git show-branch --merge-base' are equivalent (in fact it claims that the former cannot handle more than two revs). Alas, the handling of more than two revs is very different. Document this by tests and correct the documentation to reflect this. Signed-off-by: Michael J Gruber <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
