What is the meaning of colored lines in commit graphs drawn by Eclipse?

I’m trying to understand some parts of the GIT graph in Eclipse. We’ll refer to commiters as G, A, R, J and K. In this case, we have two branches : master, and agfa (dev branch). Commit 5cc4355 : What does the green line means? It’s not a new branch, so I guess it means […]

Git (assembla) – Syntax to refer to a previous changeset in a commit message

How to revert a 'git filter-branch -f –env-filter'

I am quite a newb regarding git and usually git commit, pull and push are the only commands I do. Recently noticed that my commits were set to a default name and email and wanted to change it.
