Subject: git-log on a file, and merges
Date: Fri, 2 Aug 2019 11:38:50 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have merged a branch into master.

When on master I do "git log -- some/file", it does not show commits
from merged branch (which I know they changed the file).
I have to add "--full-history" to see the commits.
When I run "git log" (without "-- some/file") I can see the commits
without using "--full-history".

This seems not logical, and contrary to user expectations. Harmful even ;)

Am I missing something?
