SYNOPSIS

git log --pretty=short | git shortlog [-h] [-n] [-s] [-e] [-w]
git shortlog [-n|--numbered] [-s|--summary] [-e|--email] [-w[<width>[,<indent1>[,<indent2>]]]] [<committish>...]

DESCRIPTION

Summarizes git-log output in a format suitable for inclusion in release announcements. Each commit will be grouped by author and the first line of the commit message will be shown.

Additionally, "[PATCH]" will be stripped from the commit description.

OPTIONS

-h
--help

Print a short usage message and exit.

-n
--numbered

Sort output according to the number of commits per author instead of author alphabetic order.

-s
--summary

Suppress commit description and provide a commit count summary only.

-e
--email

Show the email address of each author.

-w[<width>[,<indent1>[,<indent2>]]]

Linewrap the output by wrapping each line at width. The first line of each entry is indented by indent1 spaces, and the second and subsequent lines are indented by indent2 spaces. width, indent1, and indent2 default to 76, 6 and 9 respectively.

FILES

If the file .mailmap exists, it will be used for mapping author email addresses to a real author name. One mapping per line, first the author name followed by the email address enclosed by < and >. Use hash # for comments. Example:

# Keep alphabetized
Adam Morrow <adam@localhost.localdomain>
Eve Jones <eve@laptop.(none)>
