[PATCH v1 0/2] Add option to git log to choose which refs receive decoration




As suggested by Documentation/SubmittingPatches
Hi, this is my first patch.\n

I basically stumbled on the same issue mentioned here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/xmqqzim1pp4m.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

This patch implements two new command line options for `git log`:
`--decorate-refs=<pattern>` and `--decorate-refs-exlcude=<pattern>`

Both options accept a glob pattern which determines what decorations
commits receive.

At first I considered adding '--trim-decoration', that would filter refs
based on values passed to '--branches=' '--remotes=' '--tags=' and
'--exclude='.

After reading the email, I think it's better to have those two
behaviours decoupled.

I also had plans to add:
(Not sure if others deserve having their own command)
--decorate-branches=
--decorate-remotes=
--decorate-tags=

But was not sure if a 'niche' function like this is worth 5+ command
line options. I personally find that those two are enough.
