Hi Satish,

Hmm, I don't have a one-liner for this, but you'll get some idea of the 
relevant branches using
  git branch --contains maint
as well as
  git branch --no-merge maint

Keep in mind that the first command will not list branches which are not 
derived from the current tip, so older branches will be skipped. Also, 
as maint and master were identical at the last release and have 
occasionally received merges, it is not straightforward to reliably 
identify those branches in the DAG which started off maint.

Best regards,
