Subject: [PATCH 0/3] commit: add an option to reword the last commit
Date: Mon, 21 Sep 2020 13:30:47 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.736.git.1600695050.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)

If one notices a typo in the last commit after starting to stage changes for
the next commit it is useful to be able to reword the last commit without
changing its contents. Currently the way to do that is by specifying --amend
--only with no pathspec which is not that obvious to new users (so much so
that before beb635ca9c ("commit: remove 'Clever' message for --only
--amend", 2016-12-09) commit printed a message to congratulate the user on
figuring out how to do it). If the last commit is empty one has to pass
--allow-empty as well even though the contents are not being changed. These
patches contain a couple of small clean ups for the commit documentation add
a --reword option for commit that rewords the last commit without changing
its contents.
