[PATCH] Add 'git show-branch'.
The 'git show-branches' command turns out to be reasonably useful, but painfully slow. So rewrite it in C, using ideas from merge-base while enhancing it a bit more. - Unlike show-branches, it can take --heads (show me all my heads), --tags (show me all my tags), or --all (both). - It can take --more=<number> to show beyond the merge-base. - It shows the short name for each commit in the extended SHA1 syntax. - It can find merge-base for more than two heads. Examples: $ git show-branch --more=6 HEAD is almost the same as "git log --pretty=oneline --max-count=6". $ git show-branch --merge-base master mhf misc finds the merge base of the three given heads. $ git show-branch master mhf misc shows logs from the top of these three branch heads, up to their common ancestor commit is shown. $ git show-branch --all --more=10 is poor-man's gitk, showing all the tags and heads, and going back 10 commits beyond the merge base of those refs.
