Most of the work we do is committed into various branches. Everything is merged into the master branch.

Colleague was on vacation. I was working on a bug that was fixed by him some time ago. All I had to do was find the commit and merge it into the relevant branch. I didn't know which branch to search so I just looked into master. Search all commits on master made by colleague.

All I see is:

"Merged into master"
"Merged into master"
"Merged into master"

    Git should append all commit messages from the other branch.. unless that was not done on purpose.

    How did anyone not see that before?

    @mundo03 I used git terminology because I wish it was git. It's Microsoft TFS.

    @dfoianu no idea what that is. I hope it does not give you headaches

    I suggest making pull requests and then use squash and merge. Also I hope you have a develop branch because just merging to master rspecially with no commits is a ticking bomb
