git-commit-tree - Create a new commit object
'git commit-tree' <tree> [(-p <parent>)...]
'git commit-tree' [(-p <parent>)...] [-S[<keyid>]] [(-m <message>)...]
[(-F <file>)...] <tree>
This is usually not what an end user wants to run directly. See
linkgit:git-commit[1] instead.
Creates a new commit object based on the provided tree object and
emits the new commit object id on stdout. The log message is read
from the standard input, unless `-m` or `-F` options are given.
The `-m` and `-F` options can be given any number of times, in any
order. The commit log message will be composed in the order in which
the options are given.
A commit object may have any number of parents. With exactly one
parent, it is an ordinary commit. Having more than one parent makes
the commit a merge between several lines of history. Initial (root)
commits have no parents.
While a tree represents a particular directory state of a working
directory, a commit represents that state in "time", and explains how
to get there.
Normally a commit would identify a new "HEAD" state, and while Git
doesn't care where you save the note about that state, in practice we
tend to just write the result to the file that is pointed at by
`.git/HEAD`, so that we can always see what the last committed
state was.
An existing tree object.
-p <parent>::
Each `-p` indicates the id of a parent commit object.
-m <message>::
A paragraph in the commit log message. This can be given more than
once and each <message> becomes its own paragraph.
-F <file>::
Read the commit log message from the given file. Use `-` to read
from the standard input. This can be given more than once and the
content of each file becomes its own paragraph.
GPG-sign commits. The `keyid` argument is optional and
defaults to the committer identity; if specified, it must be
stuck to the option without a space. `--no-gpg-sign` is useful to
countermand a `--gpg-sign` option given earlier on the command line.
Commit Information
A commit encapsulates:
- all parent object ids
- author name, email and date
- committer name and email and the commit time.
A commit comment is read from stdin. If a changelog
entry is not provided via "<" redirection, 'git commit-tree' will just wait
for one to be entered and terminated with ^D.
