contrib: add
This patch adds into contrib/ an example script to convert grafts from an existing grafts file into replace refs using the new --graft option of "git replace". While at it let's mention this new script in the "git replace" documentation for the --graft option. Signed-off-by: Christian Couder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
