That's why after recognizing the fact the you can't find the branch
point of a branch in Git, I decided to write patches to support the
@{tail} shorthand, which is basically the point where the branch was
created, or rebased to:


And if 'git rebase' was fixed to ignore the commits already in the
rebased onto branch, almost always what you would want to do is 'git
rebase @{tail} --onto @{upstream}'.
