Those are patches that are part of GSoC project of Shourya Shukla:
'Convert submodule to builtin'.

Those are patches that are part of GSoC project of Hariom Verma:
'Unify ref-filter formats with other --pretty formats'

I'd like to point out that latest series of patches by Abhishek Kumar
which are final part of 'Implement Generation Number v2' is at what I
believe is next to final iteration:

  "[PATCH v3 00/11] [GSoC] Implement Corrected Commit Date"

It is waiting for the decision on *how to implement storing* new
generation number in the commit-graph file: should we store corrected
commit date directly as 64 bit value, or should we store corrected
commit date offset as 32 bit value with overflow handling?

Switching from 64 bits to 32 bits halves the size of the GDAT
(Generation DATa) chunk, but decreases the size of the commit-graph file
by at most 7%.  For large repository, like MS Windows with 3M commits in
2019 it would mean decreasing the size of the commit-graph file by
11.8 MiB (if I calculated it correctly).

Because corrected commit date offsets are not monotone, that is after
value that doesn't fit in 32 bits (in parent) there can be one that does
(in child).  It is extremely unlikely that in real repositories there
would be that large corrections needed, but it can happen in theory, and
therfore we need some way to handle overflow if we choose this option.
And of course we should test that overflow handling works correctly.

So there is tradeoff between complexity and commit-graph file size.
