GIT-CHERRY(1)                     Git Manual                     GIT-CHERRY(1)



NAME
       git-cherry - Find commits not merged upstream

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


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't 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:

                      __*__*__*__*__> <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:

                      __*__*__*__*__> <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're feeding patches <upstream> via email rather than pushing or pulling commits directly.

OPTIONS
       -v
           Verbose.

       <upstream>
           Upstream branch to compare against. Defaults to the first tracked remote branch, if available.

       <head>
           Working branch; defaults to HEAD.

       <limit>
           Do not report commits up to (and including) limit.
