How to detect a branch point in git?
I'm trying to determine the first commit in a branch. I've read various other SO posts (including Finding a branch point with Git?), but they don't give me what I'm after.
From looking at a branch graph I can see that it is possible to determine when a branch diverged from master (on the included image, the purple line coming from "2nd commit on master"), however I can't replicate this in text using command-line tools (
git log --graph works but is not what I'm after).
The commit I'm after is
0124fc8, i.e, the first commit to feature/new-branch.
All merges back to master are done with
git merge-base feature/new-branch master, however this gives me
--all does the same)
I've also tried
git rev-list --boundary feature/new-branch...master, which gives me several commits, but none are the one that I want.
