This has been discussed before:

but in the spirit of the perfect being the enemy of the good, nothing got done.

This series makes 'git branch -v' much faster, and gives us the most important
information; the configured upstream tracking branch.

Yes, It's someting I often want reminding of (which origin server, which master?, ..etc.) always appear to start here.

       Showing ahead/behind is
not as important,

I still find this useful - if it's up to date I don't need reminding of which remote / upstream tracking branch it's configured against ;-)

These two bits of information, while related are separate. If anything I think I'd prefer both, but then again optimisations are still good.

Bikeshedding ends.


   specially considering that currently 'git branch -v' doesn't
show the branch we are comparing the ahead/behind to.

Strictly speaking it's a regression, but nobody would complain, and if somebody
does, it should be easy to revert if needed.

Felipe Contreras (2):
 branch: trivial cleanup
 branch: reorganize verbose options
