GIT-SHORTLOG(1)                   Git Manual                   GIT-SHORTLOG(1)

       git-shortlog - Summarize ?git log? output

       git log --pretty=short | git shortlog [-h] [-n] [-s] [-e] [-w]
       git shortlog [-n|--numbered] [-s|--summary] [-e|--email] [-w[<width>[,<indent1>[,<indent2>]]]] <commit>...

       Summarizes git log output in a format suitable for inclusion in release announcements. Each commit will be
       grouped by author and the first line of the commit message will be shown.

       Additionally, "[PATCH]" will be stripped from the commit description.

       If no revisions are passed on the command line and either standard input is not a terminal or there is no
       current branch, git shortlog will output a summary of the log read from standard input, without reference to
       the current repository.

       -h, --help
           Print a short usage message and exit.

       -n, --numbered
           Sort output according to the number of commits per author instead of author alphabetic order.

       -s, --summary
           Suppress commit description and provide a commit count summary only.

       -e, --email
           Show the email address of each author.

           Instead of the commit subject, use some other information to describe each commit.  <format> can be any
           string accepted by the --format option of git log, such as * [%h] %s. (See the "PRETTY FORMATS" section of

               Each pretty-printed commit will be rewrapped before it is shown.

           Linewrap the output by wrapping each line at width. The first line of each entry is indented by indent1
           spaces, and the second and subsequent lines are indented by indent2 spaces.  width, indent1, and indent2
           default to 76, 6 and 9 respectively.

       The .mailmap feature is used to coalesce together commits by the same person in the shortlog, where their name
       and/or email address was spelled differently.

       If the file .mailmap exists at the toplevel of the repository, or at the location pointed to by the
       mailmap.file configuration option, it is used to map author and committer names and email addresses to
       canonical real names and email addresses.

       In the simple form, each line in the file consists of the canonical real name of an author, whitespace, and an
       email address used in the commit (enclosed by < and >) to map to the name. For example:

           Proper Name <commitATemail.xx>

       The more complex forms are:

           <properATemail.xx> <commitATemail.xx>

       which allows mailmap to replace only the email part of a commit, and:

           Proper Name <properATemail.xx> <commitATemail.xx>

       which allows mailmap to replace both the name and the email of a commit matching the specified commit email
       address, and:

           Proper Name <properATemail.xx> Commit Name <commitATemail.xx>

       which allows mailmap to replace both the name and the email of a commit matching both the specified commit name
       and email address.

       Example 1: Your history contains commits by two authors, Jane and Joe, whose names appear in the repository
       under several forms:

           Joe Developer <>
           Joe R. Developer <>
           Jane Doe <>
           Jane Doe <jane@laptop.(none)>
           Jane D. <jane@desktop.(none)>

       Now suppose that Joe wants his middle name initial used, and Jane prefers her family name fully spelled out. A
       proper .mailmap file would look like:

           Jane Doe         <jane@desktop.(none)>
           Joe R. Developer <>

       Note how there is no need for an entry for <jane@laptop[1].(none)>, because the real name of that author is
       already correct.

       Example 2: Your repository contains commits from the following authors:

           nick1 <bugsATcompany.xx>
           nick2 <bugsATcompany.xx>
           nick2 <nick2ATcompany.xx>
           santa <meATcompany.xx>
           claus <meATcompany.xx>
           CTO <ctoATcoompany.xx>

       Then you might want a .mailmap file that looks like:

           <ctoATcompany.xx>                       <ctoATcoompany.xx>
           Some Dude <someATdude.xx>         nick1 <bugsATcompany.xx>
           Other Author <otherATauthor.xx>   nick2 <bugsATcompany.xx>
           Other Author <otherATauthor.xx>         <nick2ATcompany.xx>
           Santa Claus <santa.clausATnorthpole.xx> <meATcompany.xx>

       Use hash # for comments that are either on their own line, or after the email address.
