NAME¶flatpak-build-commit-from - Create new commits based on existing one (possibly from another repository)
flatpak build-commit-from [OPTION...] DST-REPO DST-REF...
DESCRIPTION¶Creates new commits on the DST-REF branch in the DST-REPO, with the contents (and most of the metadata) taken from another branch, either from another repo, or from another branch in the same repository.
The collection ID set on DST-REPO (if set) will be used for the newly created commits.
This command is very useful when you want to maintain a branch with a clean history that has no unsigned or broken commits. For instance, you can import the head from a different repository from an automatic builder when you've verified that it worked. The new commit will have no parents or signatures from the autobuilder, and can be properly signed with the official key.
Any deltas that affect the original commit and that match parent commits in the destination repository are copied and rewritten for the new commit id.
OPTIONS¶The following options are understood:
EXAMPLES¶To revert a commit to the commit before:
$ flatpak build-commit-from --timestamp=NOW --src-ref=app/org.gnome.gedit/x86_64/master^ repo app/org.gnome.gedit/x86_64/master
