Git: How do I merge complex branches that have widely diverged with some missing history?

I have two “branches”, both of which started from the same code base, but both of which were imported to git after they diverged. The prior history is lost, and additionally both branches have extensive changes recorded in their git history. What is a good strategy to approach merging features and bugfixes between these two […]

git move locally committed changes to the new branch and push

I am on master. When I do git status I am told $ git status # On branch master # Your branch is ahead of ‘origin/master’ by 13 commits. # (use “git push” to publish your local commits) # nothing to commit, working directory clean So all 13 only exist on my local machine. The […]

git branch -a –contains <hash> gives me all those branches containing hash. what I want is git branch -a –no-contains <hash>. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a command to accomplish this, so I’m thinking the solution is something like: git branch -a | grep -v output of(git branch -a –contains) but my bash isn’t […]

Is there a script to list git branches created by me?

I’m aware that branches don’t really store creator information – and they’re just a pointer to a commit. My goal is to be able to clean out my old branches that have been merged back to the main branch, and list branches where this hasn’t been done either. (A clean up). This is different to […]

Git: Can't delete remote branch permanently
