NAME

       git-release - Commit, tag and push changes to the repository

SYNOPSIS

       git-release   [<tagname>   |   --semver   <name>]   [-r   <remote>]   [-m  <commit  info>]
       [--no-empty-commit] [-c] [[--] <hook arguments...>]

DESCRIPTION

       Commits changes with message "Release <tagname>" or custom commit information,  tags  with
       the given <tagname> and pushes the branch / tags.

       This  command always creates a release commit, which could be empty if nothing changed. It
       works  like  git  merge  --no-ff.  If  you  don´t  like  the  behavior,  you   could   add
       --no-empty-commit to skip it.

       Optionally  it  generates a changelog (see git-changelog) and a remote can be defined. The
       order of first -c or -r does not matter.

       If .git/hook/pre-release or .git/hook/post-release exist,  they  will  be  triggered  with
       tagname and extra hook arguments before/after the release.

OPTIONS

       --semver <name>

       If  the  latest tag in your repo matches the semver format requirement, you could increase
       part of it as the new release tag with this option. The name must be  one  of  the  major,
       minor,  patch.  For  example,  assumed  the latest tag is 4.4.0, with git release --semver
       minor you will make a new release with tag 4.5.0.

       <tagname>

       The name of the newly created tag. Also used in tag comment.

       -r <remote>

       The "remote" repository that is destination of a push operation: it is passed to git push.

       -m <commit info>

       use the custom commit information instead of the default message "Release <tagname>" .

       --no-empty-commit

       Avoid creating empty commit if nothing could be committed.

       -c

       Generates or populates the changelog with all commit message since the last tag. For  more
       info see git-changelog..

       [--] hook arguments...

       The  arguments  listed  after  "--"  separator  will  be  passed  to pre/post-release hook
       following the tagname.
