NAME

       git-reflog - Manage reflog information

SYNOPSIS

       git reflog <subcommand> <options>

DESCRIPTION

       The command takes various subcommands, and different options depending on the subcommand:

           git reflog expire [--dry-run] [--stale-fix] [--verbose]
                   [--expire=<time>] [--expire-unreachable=<time>] [--all] <refs>...
           git reflog delete ref@{specifier}...
           git reflog [show] [log-options] [<ref>]

       Reflog is a mechanism to record when the tip of branches are updated. This command is to
       manage the information recorded in it.

       The subcommand "expire" is used to prune older reflog entries. Entries older than expire
       time, or entries older than expire-unreachable time and not reachable from the current
       tip, are removed from the reflog. This is typically not used directly by the end users —
       instead, see git-gc(1).

       The subcommand "show" (which is also the default, in the absence of any subcommands) will
       take all the normal log options, and show the log of the reference provided in the
       command-line (or HEAD, by default). The reflog will cover all recent actions (HEAD reflog
       records branch switching as well). It is an alias for git log -g --abbrev-commit
       --pretty=oneline; see git-log(1).

       The reflog is useful in various Git commands, to specify the old value of a reference. For
       example, HEAD@{2} means "where HEAD used to be two moves ago", master@{one.week.ago} means
       "where master used to point to one week ago", and so on. See gitrevisions(7) for more
       details.

       To delete single entries from the reflog, use the subcommand "delete" and specify the
       exact entry (e.g. "git reflog delete master@{2}").

OPTIONS

       --stale-fix
           This revamps the logic — the definition of "broken commit" becomes: a commit that is
           not reachable from any of the refs and there is a missing object among the commit,
           tree, or blob objects reachable from it that is not reachable from any of the refs.

           This computation involves traversing all the reachable objects, i.e. it has the same
           cost as git prune. Fortunately, once this is run, we should not have to ever worry
           about missing objects, because the current prune and pack-objects know about reflogs
           and protect objects referred by them.

       --expire=<time>
           Entries older than this time are pruned. Without the option it is taken from
           configuration gc.reflogExpire, which in turn defaults to 90 days. --expire=all prunes
           entries regardless of their age; --expire=never turns off pruning of reachable entries
           (but see --expire-unreachable).

       --expire-unreachable=<time>
           Entries older than this time and not reachable from the current tip of the branch are
           pruned. Without the option it is taken from configuration gc.reflogExpireUnreachable,
           which in turn defaults to 30 days. --expire-unreachable=all prunes unreachable entries
           regardless of their age; --expire-unreachable=never turns off early pruning of
           unreachable entries (but see --expire).

       --all
           Instead of listing <refs> explicitly, prune all refs.

       --updateref
           Update the ref with the sha1 of the top reflog entry (i.e. <ref>@{0}) after expiring
           or deleting.

       --rewrite
           While expiring or deleting, adjust each reflog entry to ensure that the old sha1 field
           points to the new sha1 field of the previous entry.

       --verbose
           Print extra information on screen.
