NAME
----
git-shortlog - Summarize 'git log' output
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
git log --pretty=short | 'git shortlog' [<options>]
'git shortlog' [<options>] [<revision range>] [[\--] <path>...]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Summarizes 'git log' output in a format suitable for inclusion
in release announcements. Each commit will be grouped by author and title.
Additionally, "[PATCH]" will be stripped from the commit description.
If no revisions are passed on the command line and either standard input
is not a terminal or there is no current branch, 'git shortlog' will
output a summary of the log read from standard input, without
reference to the current repository.
OPTIONS
-------
-n::
--numbered::
Sort output according to the number of commits per author instead
of author alphabetic order.
-s::
--summary::
Suppress commit description and provide a commit count summary only.
-e::
--email::
Show the email address of each author.
--format[=<format>]::
Instead of the commit subject, use some other information to
describe each commit. '<format>' can be any string accepted
by the `--format` option of 'git log', such as '* [%h] %s'.
(See the "PRETTY FORMATS" section of linkgit:git-log[1].)
Each pretty-printed commit will be rewrapped before it is shown.
-w[<width>[,<indent1>[,<indent2>]]]::
Linewrap the output by wrapping each line at `width`. The first
line of each entry is indented by `indent1` spaces, and the second
and subsequent lines are indented by `indent2` spaces. `width`,
`indent1`, and `indent2` default to 76, 6 and 9 respectively.
+
If width is `0` (zero) then indent the lines of the output without wrapping
them.
<revision range>::
Show only commits in the specified revision range. When no
<revision range> is specified, it defaults to `HEAD` (i.e. the
whole history leading to the current commit). `origin..HEAD`
specifies all the commits reachable from the current commit
(i.e. `HEAD`), but not from `origin`. For a complete list of
ways to spell <revision range>, see the "Specifying Ranges"
section of linkgit:gitrevisions[7].
[\--] <path>...::
Consider only commits that are enough to explain how the files
that match the specified paths came to be.
+
Paths may need to be prefixed with "\-- " to separate them from
options or the revision range, when confusion arises.
MAPPING AUTHORS
---------------
The `.mailmap` feature is used to coalesce together commits by the same
person in the shortlog, where their name and/or email address was
spelled differently.
