       flatpak-build-commit-from - Create new commits based on existing one (possibly from
       another repository)


       flatpak build-commit-from [OPTION...] DST-REPO DST-REF...


       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.

       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.


       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
           Show help options and exit.

           The (local) repository to pull the source branch from. Defaults to the destination

           The branch to use as the source for the new commit. Defaults to the same as the
           destination ref, which is useful only if a different source repo has been specified.

           The source repostory is not trusted, all objects are copied (not hardlinked) and all
           checksums are verified.

       -s, --subject=SUBJECT
           One line subject for the commit message. If not specified, will be taken from the
           source commit.

       -b, --body=BODY
           Full description for the commit message. If not specified, will be taken from the
           source commit.

           Update the appstream branch after the build.

           Don't update the summary file after the new commit is added. This means the repository
           will not be useful for serving over http until build-repo-update has been run. This is
           useful is you want to do multiple repo operations before finally updating the summary.

           Create new commit even if the content didn't change from the existing branch head.

           Sign the commit with this GPG key. This option can be used multiple times.

           GPG Homedir to use when looking for keyrings

       -v, --verbose
           Print debug information during command processing.

           Print OSTree debug information during command processing.

           Print version information and exit.
