Our team usually use laullon’s gitx fork as a git GUI on OSX and so far it has worked brilliantly. However as we started to use many branches recently, after a while it got hard for everyone to see which commit belonged to which branch and whether/where it was merged into.
So I went ahead and added a simple function to get the branches that contain a selected commit. Just right click on any commit, select “Containing Branches” and you’ll get a list of branches that contain that commit.
In the background it just calls
git branch -r --containing abcd1234
