Mark files as changed without changing them

How to tell git that all files in a repository have changed, so I can commit and push them?

How can I tell git that files have changed before committing and pushing them, without really […]

git I forgot to edit a line before commiting and pushing

I decided to integrate a library into my code. I add the library, and change a couple lines of code to start implementing it. It compiles, so I commit and push to the repo. I only realise later that I’ve missed a line that is still on old code. I give it a google search […]

How to use git-svn as intermediate review tool for a SVN repository?

is there any difference between `git reset HEAD` and `git reset HEAD~`

I’m currently learning the git reset command. I was just wondering, what is the difference between git reset HEAD vs git reset HEAD~. Are these commands two ways to achieve the same thing?

[rejected] master -> master (non-fast-forward) error: failed to push some refs to ‘git@heroku.com:my-app.git’ hint: Updates were rejected because the tip of your current branch is behind hint: its remote counterpart.

How to change a Git commit's encoding header?

I have some commits with an author name which has ISO-8859-1 encoded name but the commit encoding header is empty, which defaults to UTF-8. This leads some applications to error (eg. Gitlab) on decoding the commit. Same applies to some commit messages. Some […]

Changing lots of git commit messages

Apparently I mistyped my email a long time ago, whenever I was setting up git, and so my email has been incorrect in many repositories (I typed a 0 instead of an o). I sign all of my commits, so in almost every commit in every repo for years it’s said signed off by: <xxx0@foo.bar> […]
