Best way to keep track of your update

gitredmine update

So.. you need to see the commit messages of new commits between 2 branches like

git log --no-merges master_branch..releases_branch

?

Hello,

 

My team and I are using redmine and git to track our modification to the projects.

It's a php projects, and from time to time (after testing of course) I make the update to the main server.

 

In git, we use a feature workflow, everybody work on their own branch, then merge to the "dev" branch, and when I'm ready I merge to the "releases" branch to test, and if everything works, I merge the master branch, and then update then server via the master branch

 

But the problem is that I don't always know what new feature has been introduce, to the update

Of course, I remember the main / most important feature, but once a feature is merged in git, or closed in redmine, I don't know if this is part of this update or the last one, or a other one before that.

 

What technics do you use to keep track of what will be part of your update?

Sweet answer, did not think of comparing the two branch!

I was mostly thinking of creating a custom field in redmine and changing the value when I send them to the server, but your solution is so much easier and simpler!

 

Thanks
