I was surprised to see this as a separate script, but it is true that we
cannot quite pull it off with --format. I think we are very close,
though. With the patches below I think you can do:
git log \
--commit-header='%C(auto,bold blue)== %as ==%C(auto,reset)'
%C(auto,red)%aS/%cS%C(auto)%d%C(auto,reset) %s' \
--graph --no-merges --author-date-order --date=format:%H:%M
and get the same (or very similar) output.
[1/5]: pretty: allow formatting DATE_SHORT
[2/5]: pretty: allow formatting names as initials
[3/5]: graph: fix extra spaces in graph_padding_line
[4/5]: graph: helper functions for printing commit header
[5/5]: log: add --commit-header option
Each of those commits needs some minor polish, and as I'm not really
that interested in fancy log output myself, I don't plan on working on
them further. I was mostly curious just how close we were. But if you'd
like to pursue it, feel free to use them as a starting point.
 Actually, I think patch 3 is a legitimate bug fix on its own but I
do not think there is any way to actually trigger it in practice
without the rest of this series.
