git rev-list --max-count=n
seems to always list the _last_ (newest) n commits. Is there any
functionality to list the _first_ n commits?
I've tried to add --reverse hoping that this would do it but it does
The manual could be a bit more clear about that:
--max-count=<number> Limit the number of commits to output.
If it really would only limit the _output_ (like head -n), then
IMO --reverse should do what I want.
Regarding my initial question. Maybe we could support
to list the first n commits.
