You are right. Commits do not remember the branch name they were committed 
on. (Unlike subversion and mercurial)
You can sometimes guess it from the log. For example, when a commit is 
merged in the current branch, you sometimes see 'merged branch 'the_branch' 
into master'. Then you know the commit was done in branch 'the_branch'.
