Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new
tree object is printed to standard output.
The index must be in a fully merged state.
Conceptually, git write-tree sync()s the current index contents into
a set of tree files. In order to have that match what is actually in
your directory right now, you need to have done a git update-index
phase before you did the git write-tree.
Normally git write-tree ensures that the objects referenced by
the directory exist in the object database. This option disables
Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory <prefix>.
This can be used to write the tree object for a subproject that
is in the named subdirectory.
