ZOINKS!

We’re seeing the two commits that differentiate the upstream branch defunkt/master and plastictrophy/master.

http://github.com/<handle>/<repo/compare/<branch>

If the handle/repo is a fork and the branch is owned by upstream, you’ll get what we see above.

 

It appears to work on simple branches too:
