DESCRIPTION
-----------
Lists commit objects in reverse chronological order starting at the
given commit(s), taking ancestry relationship into account. This is
useful to produce human-readable log output.
Commits which are stated with a preceding '{caret}' cause listing to
stop at that point. Their parents are implied. Thus the following
command:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ git rev-list foo bar ^baz
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
means "list all the commits which are included in 'foo' and 'bar', but
not in 'baz'".
A special notation "'<commit1>'..'<commit2>'" can be used as a
short-hand for "{caret}'<commit1>' '<commit2>'". For example, either of
the following may be used interchangeably:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ git rev-list origin..HEAD
$ git rev-list HEAD ^origin
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Another special notation is "'<commit1>'...'<commit2>'" which is useful
for merges. The resulting set of commits is the symmetric difference
between the two operands. The following two commands are equivalent:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ git rev-list A B --not $(git merge-base --all A B)
$ git rev-list A...B
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
'git-rev-list' is a very essential git program, since it
provides the ability to build and traverse commit ancestry graphs. For
this reason, it has a lot of different options that enables it to be
used by commands as different as 'git-bisect' and
'git-repack'.
