I'm reviewing trac ticket #11111 and I want to see the changes introduced by this ticket on top of ticket #8678. I've already reviewed the other patch, so I don't want to waste my time re-reading those changes.

How do I do this?

If a branch A depends on branches A1 A2 .. Ai, then in order to see the modifications that A makes without seeing those already made in A1, ..., Ai you can type:

git diff A ^A1 ^A2 ... ^Ai

Of course the A and Ai must be names of branches or identifiers of commits.

Thank you, Nathann! For the record, I checked out branches A and A1 on my machine; I merged develop into A1; then I ran the command above. This did exactly what I wanted. Thanks!
