I am trying to find the time at which a remote branch was created, so
that I can use the '--since' option in git log to limit the commits to
only ones that were created for that branch (read below to see why I
can't use 'git log <branchnname>). So my question: does git remember
the time at which a branch was created, and how can it be listed?
NOTE: Once I clone a repository that contains Branch1 (which will have
its own commits as well as commits from the master branch), I create
Branch2 in the clone to track Branch1. Branch1 will have commits
before the cloning, and Branch2 will have its own commits after the
cloning, but I want to list both. The way I am thinking of doing it is
to list all commits for Branch2, and then limit the commits to only
ones that were created after Branch1 was created.
If anyone has suggestions on doing this alternatively, please feel
free to pitch in. Thank you.
