Subject: Feature request: "author branch" in commit object
Date: Tue, 2 Jul 2013 12:37:13 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CADL+T9YGtvFrzStxJW64OJEV6H0BroMbkVCJdsDwWDaUWd91zQ@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

I realize that branch names are ephemeral repo-specific things, but it
would be really useful to be able to determine what branch a commit
was authored from (as a hint to ancestry graph layout tools, for
example). Is there any way to do this currently, is it planned, or
would it be deemed useful enough to be worth adding to each commit
object?
