git branch merging details
I noticed the following branch merged to master branch. I have a DEV and Master stream. This branch was merged to DEV but some how also found in master when I review master by issuing
git log origin/master command.
Merge: e4d499a 5ef2bd6
Date: Fri Jul 01 16:24:53 2013 -0700
Merge branch 'my_branch' into dev
Is there a way to figure out how this get to master branch?
User A run the following:
git checkout master
git checkout -b my_branch
git add .
git commit -m "my work done"
git checkout dev
git merge my_branch
User B run the following:
git checkout my_branch
git checkout master
git merge my_branch
In git log, can we find out if User B did the merge or user A ?
