NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       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:

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

       --src-repo=SRC-REPO
           The (local) repository to pull the source branch from. Defaults to the destination
           repository.

       --src-ref=SRC-REF
           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.

       --extra-collection-id=COLLECTION-ID
           Add an extra collection-ref binding for this collection, in addition to whatever would
           normally be added due to the destination repository collection id. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --untrusted
           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-appstream
           Update the appstream branch after the build.

       --no-update-summary
           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-update-repo has been run. This is
           useful is you want to do multiple repo operations before finally updating the summary.

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

       --disable-fsync
           Don't fsync when writing to the repository. This can result in data loss in
           exceptional situations, but can improve performance when working with temporary or
           test repositories.

       --gpg-sign=KEYID
           Sign the commit with this GPG key. This option can be used multiple times.

       --gpg-homedir=PATH
           GPG Homedir to use when looking for keyrings

       --end-of-life=REASON
           Mark build as end-of-life

       --end-of-life-rebase=OLDID=NEWID
           Mark new refs as end-of-life. Unlike --end-of-life, this one takes an ID that
           supercedes the current one. By the user's request, the application data may be
           preserved for the new application. Note, this is actually a prefix match, so if you
           say org.the.app=org.new.app, then something like org.the.app.Locale will be rebased to
           org.new.app.Locale.

       --timestamp=TIMESTAMP
           Override the timestamp of the commit. Use an ISO 8601 formatted date, or NOW for the
           current time

       --disable-fsync
           Don't fsync when writing to the repository. This can result in data loss in
           exceptional situations, but can improve performance when working with temporary or
           test repositories.

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

       --ostree-verbose
           Print OSTree debug information during command processing.

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
