Git: List branches that contain a word.

List branches that contain a word.

\> git branch --list *some-word*


List branches that contain one or more words.

git branch --list *pattern* *pattern*


See https://git-scm.com/docs/git-branch

If a <pattern> is given, it is used as a shell wildcard to restrict the output to matching branches. If multiple patterns are given, a branch is shown if it matches any of the patterns. Note that when providing a <pattern>, you must use --list; otherwise the command is interpreted as branch creation.
