3.4.6 Git log

The commands above don’t only bring you the latest version of the sources, but also the full history of revisions (revisions, also called commits, are changes made to the sources), stored in the ‘.git’ directory. You can browse this history with

git log     # only shows the logs (author, committish and commit message)
git log -p  # also shows diffs
gitk        # shows history graphically

Note: The gitk command may require a separate gitk package, available in the appropriate distribution’s repositories.
