NAME

ostree-commit - Commit a new revision  

SYNOPSIS

ostree commit [OPTIONS...] --branch= {BRANCH} [PATH]
 

DESCRIPTION

This allows you to commit changes to a branch. The specification of the branch is required. The command will print the checksum of a successful commit.  

OPTIONS

--subject, -s="SUBJECT"

One line subject. (optional)

--body, -m="BODY"

Full description. (optional)

--body-file, -F="FILE"

Full commit description from a file. (optional)

--editor, -e

Open a text editor for the commit description. It will use OSTREE_EDITOR, VISUAL, EDITOR, or vi, in descending order of preference. The commit will be aborted if the message is left empty.

--branch, -b="BRANCH"

Branch. Required, unless --orphan is given.

--parent="COMMIT"

Parent checksum or "none" to explicitly use no parent. If not specified, BRANCH is used as parent (no parent in case BRANCH does not exist).

--tree="dir=PATH" or "tar=TARFILE" or "ref=COMMIT"

Overlay the given argument as a tree. When committing an archive, the TARFILE can be specified as - to read the archive from standard input.

--base="REV"

Start from the content in a commit. This differs from --tree=ref=REV in that no commit modifiers are applied. This is usually what you want when creating a derived commit. This is also used for --selinux-policy-from-base.

--add-metadata-string="KEY=VALUE"

Add a key/value pair to metadata. Can be specified multiple times.

--add-metadata="KEY=VALUE"

Add a key/value pair to metadata, where the KEY is a string, and VALUE is g_variant_parse() formatted. Can be specified multiple times.

--keep-metadata="KEY"

Keep metadata KEY and its associated VALUE from parent. Can be specified multiple times.

--add-detached-metadata-string="KEY=VALUE"

Add a key/value pair to detached metadata.

--owner-uid="UID"

Set file ownership user id.

--owner-gid="GID"

Set file ownership group id.

--no-xattrs

Do not import extended attributes.

--link-checkout-speedup

Optimize for commits of trees composed of hardlinks into the repository.

--tar-autocreate-parents

When loading tar archives, automatically create parent directories as needed.

--skip-if-unchanged

If the contents are unchanged from previous commit, do nothing.

--consume

When committing from a local directory (i.e. not an archive or --tree=ref), assume ownership of the content. This may simply involve deleting it, but if possible, the content may simply be rename()ed into the repository rather than creating a new copy.

--statoverride="PATH"

File containing list of modifications to make permissions (file mode, followed by space, followed by file path).

--skip-list="PATH"

File containing list of file paths to skip (one path per line).

--table-output

Output more information in a KEY: VALUE format.

--generate-sizes

Generate size information along with commit metadata.

--gpg-sign="KEY-ID"

GPG Key ID with which to sign the commit (if have GPGME - GNU Privacy Guard Made Easy).

--gpg-homedir="HOMEDIR"

GPG home directory to use when looking for keyrings (if have GPGME - GNU Privacy Guard Made Easy).

--timestamp="TIMESTAMP"

Override the timestamp of the commit to TIMESTAMP.

--orphan

Create a commit without writing to a ref (branch)

--fsync="POLICY"

POLICY is a boolean which specifies whether fsync should be used or not. Default to true.

-s, --sign-type

Use particular signature engine. Currently available ed25519 and dummy signature types. The default is ed25519.

--sign="KEY-ID"

There KEY-ID is:

for ed25519:

base64-encoded secret key for commit signing.

for dummy:

ASCII-string used as secret key.
