git: Show history with a helpful branching tree


Tracking down branching ancestry in revision control is horrible to say least. At least git has a nice little feature which lets you change the log output into a nicer layout.

git log --graph

To look at a specific revision:

git log --graph commitid

This will give a nice branched log format to help you track down commits.
