git log –oneline > oneliner.txt
Then we use cat with grep to look for things like:
‘weekly release 3.6’ or ‘New’.
cat oneliner.txt |grep ‘weekly release 3.6’
which renders lines like:
95abbe12ba2 weekly release 3.6.5+
61d76db67bd weekly release 3.6.4+
2f1ed943880 weekly release 3.6.3+
So to ‘roll back’ the code one could set by the first column value.
which is the Commit hash.
Wanna see all that’s new?
cat oneliner.txt |grep ‘New’
