I have two remote branches master and branchB.
I've merged master into branchB with git checkout branchB && git merge
After that I did git rev-list master..branchB to see commits of branchB
which are not in master and actually got some sha1 from master.
So I decided to list branches having that sha1
$ git branch --contains sha1
To my surprise it shows only branchB has this commit. Can someone tell me
why? I'd expect to see both master and branchB having it
