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)

       --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.

       --tree="dir=PATH" or "tar=TARFILE" or "ref=COMMIT"
           Overlay the given argument as a tree.

       --add-metadata-string="KEY=VALUE"
           Add a key/value pair to metadata.

       --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.
