Creating and editing commits

  • About commits

    You can save small groups of meaningful changes as commits.

  • Creating a commit with multiple authors

    You can attribute a commit to more than one author by adding one or more Co-authored-by trailers to the commit's message. Co-authored commits are visible on GitHub AE and can be included in the profile contributions graph and the repository's statistics.

  • Changing a commit message

    If a commit message contains unclear, incorrect, or sensitive information, you can amend it locally and push a new commit with a new message to GitHub AE. You can also change a commit message to add missing information.
