+git-write-blob - Creates a blob from a file
+'git-write-blob' <any-file-on-the-filesystem>
+Writes the contents of the named file (which can be outside of the work
+tree) as a blob into the object database, and reports its object ID to its
+standard output. This is used by "git-merge-one-file-script" to update the
+cache without modifying files in the work tree.
