i can see the standard use of "--depth" when set to precisely one, for CI/CD systems that don't need any history. but what does it mean to say, eg, "--depth 10"?
the man page explains that as "a history truncated to the specified number of commits", but what does mean in the sense of branching and merging? will i get *precisely* 10 commits of history? and in the context of merging, *which* 10 commits? sorry if this should be obvious. rday -- ======================================================================== Robert P.
