git-commit: revamp the git-commit semantics.
- "git commit" without _any_ parameter keeps the traditional behaviour. It commits the current index. We commit the whole index even when this form is run from a subdirectory. - "git commit --include paths..." (or "git commit -i paths...") is equivalent to: git update-index --remove paths... git commit - "git commit paths..." acquires a new semantics. This is an incompatible change that needs user training, which I am still a bit reluctant to swallow, but enough people seem to have complained that it is confusing to them. It 1. refuses to run if $GIT_DIR/MERGE_HEAD exists, and reminds trained git users that the traditional semantics now needs -i flag. 2. refuses to run if named paths... are different in HEAD and the index (ditto about reminding). Added paths are OK. 3. reads HEAD commit into a temporary index file. 4. updates named paths... from the working tree in this temporary index. 5. does the same updates of the paths... from the working tree to the real index. 6. makes a commit using the temporary index that has the current HEAD as the parent, and updates the HEAD with this new commit. - "git commit --all" can run from a subdirectory, but it updates the index with all the modified files and does a whole tree commit. - In all cases, when the command decides not to create a new commit, the index is left as it was before the command is run. This means that the two "git diff" in the following sequence: $ git diff $ git commit -a $ git diff would show the same diff if you abort the commit process by making the commit log message empty. This commit also introduces much requested --author option. $ git commit --author 'A U Thor <>' Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
