Git log output log file
I am doing an assignment in a university course and I am using git as version control for this assignment. The game I have been working on is complete, however, along with the hand in I would like to submit the git log, effectively showing my progress during the time I have been working on it.
I have tried this:
git log --stat > log.log
But it more or less just gives me very unreadable stuff. Can anyone help me with a command so that I can get a nice formatting on this?

I would recommend using a different format than the default. My usual choice is summary with the graph, but one line summary alone usually does the trick.
Option 1: One line summary w/ Graph
git log --pretty=format:'%h : %s' --graph > log.log
* 2d3acf9 : ignore errors from SIGCHLD on trap * 5e3ee11 : Merge branch 'master' of git://github.com/dustin/grit |\ | * 420eac9 : Added a method for getting the current branch. * | 30e367c : timeout code and tests * | 5a09431 : add timeout protection to grit * | e1193f8 : support for heads with slashes in them |/ * d6016bc : require time for xmlschema
Option 2: One line summary w/o Graph
git log --pretty=format:'%h was %an, %ar, message: %s' > log.log
