Lost a git commit
I have the hash for a git commit I made a few weeks ago. I tried checking it out but it says that the hash "did not match any file(s) known to git". I also looked for it in git reflog, but don't see it there. I don't see the earliest commits I made in reflog either.
I couldn't find the missing commit in my remote repository in Gitorious either. However, I do see the earliest commits I made in Gitorious, just not the one I'm looking for.
When I do git diff COMMIT I see the changes between that commit and HEAD (afaik) but I would like to see the changes that were made by that single commit. I haven't found any obvious options on diff/l
