rebase: allow rebasing onto different base.
This allows you to rewrite history a bit more flexibly, by separating the other branch name and new branch point. By default, the new branch point is the same as the tip of the other branch as before, but you can specify where you graft the rebased branch onto. When you have this ancestry graph: A---B---C topic / D---E---F---G master $ git rebase --onto master~1 master topic would rewrite the history to look like this: A'\''--B'\''--C'\'' topic / D---E---F---G master Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

-USAGE='<upstream> [<head>]'
+USAGE='[--onto <newbase>] <upstream> [<branch>]'
+LONG_USAGE='If <branch> is specified, switch to that branch first. Then,
+extract commits in the current branch that are not in <upstream>,
+and reconstruct the current on top of <upstream>, discarding the original
+development history. If --onto <newbase> is specified, the history is
+reconstructed on top of <newbase>, instead of <upstream>. For example,
+while on "topic" branch:
+
+ A---B---C topic
+ /
+ D---E---F---G master
+
+ $ '"$0"' --onto master~1 master topic
+
+would rewrite the history to look like this:
+
+
+ A'\''--B'\''--C'\'' topic
+ /
+ D---E---F---G master
