STG-UNCOMMIT(1)               StGit Manual               STG-UNCOMMIT(1)

NAME         top

       stg-uncommit - Turn regular git commits into StGit patches

SYNOPSIS         top

       stg uncommit [--] <patch-name-1> [<patch-name-2> ...]
       stg uncommit -n NUM [--] [<prefix>]
       stg uncommit -t <committish> [-x]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Take one or more git commits at the base of the current stack and
       turn them into StGit patches. The new patches are created as
       applied patches at the bottom of the stack. This is the opposite
       of stg commit.

       By default, the number of patches to uncommit is determined by
       the number of patch names provided on the command line. First
       name is used for the first patch to uncommit, i.e. for the newest

       The -n/--number option specifies the number of patches to
       uncommit. In this case, at most one patch name may be specified.
       It is used as prefix to which the patch number is appended. If no
       patch names are provided on the command line, StGit automatically
       generates them based on the first line of the patch description.

       The -t/--to option specifies that all commits up to and including
       the given commit should be uncommitted.

       Only commits with exactly one parent can be uncommitted; in other
       words, you can’t uncommit a merge.

OPTIONS         top

       -n NUMBER, --number NUMBER
           Uncommit the specified number of commits.

       -t TO, --to TO
           Uncommit to the specified commit.

       -x, --exclusive
           Exclude the commit specified by the --to option.
