I have discussed it with Kendy. He suggested to try something like:

git log --after=<start_date> --before=<end_date> "origin/<branch>@{<end_date>}"


git log --before=2010-11-10 --after=2010-11-01 "origin/master@{2010-11-10}"

where "origin/<branch>@{<end_date>}" selects a commit in the master
branch around the given date. You could even use time, e.g.
"origin/master@{2010-11-10 00:00:00}". See "man gitrevisions".

Then the after/before options should select only commits around the
defined one. The defined one should be from the original branch. It
should not count commits that were later merged from other branches.

I havn't tested it, though.
