contrib git-resurrect: find traces of a branch name and resurrect it
Add a tool 'git-resurrect.sh <branch>' that tries to find traces of the <branch> in the HEAD reflog and, optionally, all merge commits in the repository. It can then resurrect the branch, pointing it at the most recent of all candidate commits found. Signed-off-by: Thomas Rast <trast@student.ethz.ch> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

+USAGE="[-a] [-r] [-m] [-t] [-n] [-b <newname>] <name>"
+LONG_USAGE="git-resurrect attempts to find traces of a branch tip
+called <name>, and tries to resurrect it. Currently, the reflog is
+searched for checkout messages, and with -r also merge messages. With
+-m and -t, the history of all refs is scanned for Merge <name> into
+other/Merge <other> into <name> (respectively) commit subjects, which
+is rather slow but allows you to resurrect other people's topic
+branches."
+
+OPTIONS_SPEC="\
+git resurrect $USAGE
+--
+b,branch= save branch as <newname> instead of <name>
+a,all same as -l -r -m -t
+k,keep-going full rev-list scan (instead of first match)
+l,reflog scan reflog for checkouts (enabled by default)
+r,reflog-merges scan for merges recorded in reflog
+m,merges scan for merges into other branches (slow)
+t,merge-targets scan for merges of other branches into <name>
+n,dry-run don't recreate the branch"
