I would like to understand what the Merge: line is telling me in the output
of a git log showing a fast forward merge. 

For commit 8aa6f4fa below
I can see the two SHA's listed there right below it. I just don't really 
understand what that line is saying. From what I've read around Fast Forward
it seems it would be the SHA that was common between master and the branch
and then the SHA that it moved HEAD to. 

Sometimes it's like this with the two referenced commits right below
but other times it is not and one of the commits referenced is much
further down in the log.
