Scenario: throughout the month, your main branch takes in many pull-requests. You want to see the sequence of merge points in chronological order.
On BitBucket, the commit listing is chronological but doesn’t show the merge commits. I usually unhide the merge commits, so on my page the merge commits are interleaved with “regular” commits in chronological order like
- commit 2a
The regular commits line up according to their commit timestamps. the most recent merge could have its one and only commit created months ago !
What I want is “nothing but the merge points”. I think I have to ignore the “regular” commits and only look at the merge commits.
