2007-01-12fix documentation for git-commit --no-verifyMichael S. Tsirkin
Despite what the documentation claims, git-commit does not check commit for suspicious lines: all hooks are disabled by default, and the pre-comit hook could be changed to do something else. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@mellanox.co.il> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2006-12-16make commit message a little more consistent and confortingNicolas Pitre
It is nicer to let the user know when a commit succeeded all the time, not only the first time. Also the commit sha1 is much more useful than the tree sha1 in this case. This patch also introduces a -q switch to supress this message as well as the summary of created/deleted files.

2006-05-05Fix up docs where "--" isn't displayed correctly.sean
A bare "--" doesn't show up in man or html pages correctly as two individual dashes unless backslashed as \-- in the asciidoc source. Note, no backslash is needed inside a literal block. Signed-off-by: Sean Estabrooks <seanlkml@sympatico.ca> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2006-04-05git-commit: document --amendMarco Roeland
The "--amend" option is used to amend the tip of the current branch. This documentation text was copied straight from the commit that implemented it. Some minor format tweaks for asciidoc were taken from work by Francis Daly in commit b0d08a5.. It looks good now also in the html page.

2006-02-13git-commit: Now --only semantics is the default.Junio C Hamano
This changes the "git commit paths..." to default to --only semantics from traditional --include semantics, as agreed on the list. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2006-02-07git-commit: revamp the git-commit semantics.Junio C Hamano
- "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 <author@example.com>' Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-12-17Examples of resetting.Junio C Hamano
Morten Welinder says examples of resetting is really about recovering from botched commit/pulls. I agree that pointers from commands that cause a reset to be needed in the first place would be very helpful. Also reset examples did not mention "pull/merge" cases.

2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.
