I want to learn about how Git compares patches while doing a merge. For
example, if a patch has been cherry-picked from branch A to branch B, and then
downstream we do a "git merge" from A to B, how does Git know to skip the
cherry-picked patch? It would have a different SHA-1, so what is the
comparison algorithm/heuristic? What happens if the comment is different, but
the actual patch is identical?
I searched around, but couldn't find information on this. I would appreciate
it if someone could point me in the right direction.
