I have 3 remotes registered in my clone: origin, fork, drive
When I do: $ git log --oneline --decorate --graph I only want to see branches under: refs/heads/* refs/remotes/origin/* I tried the following: $ git log --oneline --decorate --graph --simplify-by-decoration --remote=origin topic1..master However, I still see refs present in the graph for 'drive' and 'fork' remote tracking branches. I can't tell if these are shown simply because other refs not excluded by my options happen to also be at that SHA1, or if the log command is still generating the graph based on other branches. What I'm expecting is that I literally see NONE of those excluded refs on the graph, even if other included refs also happen to be positioned at those commits. It's the visualization of the refs I'm concerned about: I have a lot of remote tracking branches in those remotes that clutter the view; I'd rather not see them at all (in addition to the graph not considering them when it is being built/generated). Am I misunderstanding the purpose here? How can I achieve my goals? Documentation hasn't really helped me out here.
