I am trying to understand how forking exactly works. When repo A contains 10 commits and gets forked to repo B, suddenly repo B also counts 10 commits, but these commits are the same. My assumption is that the
oid for each commit is the same across both repos, is that correct? So, when I compare all commits on repo A with repo B I should be able to calculate an intersection and return % of overlap?
I’ve setup a test, but although both repos have been forked from the same parent, the commits don’t seem to overlap at all. So I’m either running into a technical/conceptual issue or my above assumption is not correct.
