Hi all,

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.
