How can I show a git log output with (at least) this information:
* commit date
I want it compressed to one line per log entry. What's the shortest possible format for that?
--format=oneline but that does not show the date)
git log --pretty=format:"%h%x09%an%x09%ad%x09%s"
does the job. This outputs:

Inspired by stackoverflow question: "git log output like svn ls -v", I found out that I could add the exact params I needed.
To shorten the date (not showing the time) use
In case you were curious what the different options were:
%h = abbreviated commit hash
%x09 = tab (character for code 9)
%an = author name
%ad = author date (format respects --date= option)
%s = subject
