This is how DVCS is designed to function. You do work on a branch, then merge that branch back in to the main line of work. We show you this visually so you have an idea of what work is going on. When you merge your work together, this usually requires a commit. For more information, I recommend you read over our documentation. To see this same graph at the command line for Git, check out this great Stack Overflow post.

Thanks for your comment.

Actually, whole team is working on "master" branch from bitbucket. there is no any other branch exists. And every one has created clone for master branch at locally.

Though graph shows two lines as looks in attached snap in previous image.

Please share me if any impact about, changes made between two "merge request.." changeset are lost in latest one or covered ? I mean, if Person A working on older version of master and bitbucket master/origin copy has newer version by person B,C,D has already pushed. Now Person A will push the changes to server then two entries fall - One if for "Merge of branch http://....." and commit changes.

Is it possible to changes are loss in latest commit due to pushed by person A made changes in older version. ?

and also, that changeset appear against "Merge of branch http://...." message shows changed files which are not updated by that person A. Please share me your comments.

please share your comments.
