git-cherry - Find commits not merged upstream
git cherry [-v] [<upstream> [<head> [<limit>]]]
The changeset (or "diff") of each commit between the fork-point and <head> is compared
against each commit between the fork-point and <upstream>. The commits are compared with
their patch id, obtained from the git patch-id program.
Every commit that doesn't exist in the <upstream> branch has its id (sha1) reported,
prefixed by a symbol. The ones that have equivalent change already in the <upstream>
branch are prefixed with a minus (-) sign, and those that only exist in the <head> branch
are prefixed with a plus (+) symbol:
If a <limit> has been given then the commits along the <head> branch up to and including
<limit> are not reported:
Because git cherry compares the changeset rather than the commit id (sha1), you can use
git cherry to find out if a commit you made locally has been applied <upstream> under a
different commit id. For example, this will happen if you're feeding patches <upstream>
via email rather than pushing or pulling commits directly.
Upstream branch to compare against. Defaults to the first tracked remote branch, if
Working branch; defaults to HEAD.
Do not report commits up to (and including) limit.
