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. 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.
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.
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
