Maybe that's a bit advanced topic to be in the newbies section but I place it in here because I am a newbie, and I think it is to a great extent a newbie question.
I'm doing a git bisect on the kernel trying to trace a commit that causes a bug.
the bug is supposed to be somewhere between v3.12.9 and v3.13
but when I run
git bisect start v3.13 v3.12.9
Bisecting: a merge base must be tested
[5e01dc7b26d9f24f39abace5da98ccbd6a5ceb52] Linux 3.12
Now how does that make sense? isn't it supposed to get me to a commit that is in the middle between 3.12.9 and 3.13?
is 3.12 actually a commit in between and I just don't understand the numberings right?
am I doing something wrong?
