There is no concept of per-file revisions in git.
But you can check which ones are changed in multiple ways, eg:

* per commit, commit-range or per-branch level -> see git-log manpage
* between arbitratry commints -> see git-diff manpage

Forget about the staging issue (index) at this point - it's just
existing in the _local_ clone (eg of some individual developer),
for your usecase you're only interested in what's actually committed
to certain branch(es).
