1. NAME

git-cherry - Find commits not merged upstream

2. SYNOPSIS



git cherry [-v] [<upstream> [<head> [<limit>]]]

3. DESCRIPTION



The changeset (or "diff") of each commit between the fork-point and <head> is compared against each commit between the fork-point and <upstream>. The commits are compared with their patch id, obtained from the git patch-id program.

Every commit that doesn(cqt exist in the <upstream> branch has its id (sha1) reported, prefixed by a symbol. The ones that have equivalent change already in the <upstream> branch are prefixed with a minus (-) sign, and those that only exist in the <head> branch are prefixed with a plus (+) symbol:


.

 
Sélectionnez
          __*__*__*__*__> <upstream>
          /
fork-point
          \__+__+__-__+__+__-__+__> <head>

.

If a <limit> has been given then the commits along the <head> branch up to and including <limit> are not reported:


.

 
Sélectionnez
          __*__*__*__*__> <upstream>
          /
fork-point
          \__*__*__<limit>__-__+__> <head>

.

Because git cherry compares the changeset rather than the commit id (sha1), you can use git cherry to find out if a commit you made locally has been applied <upstream> under a different commit id. For example, this will happen if you(cqre feeding patches <upstream> via email rather than pushing or pulling commits directly.
