How to amend a commit without changing commit message (reusing the previous one)?


Is there a way to amend a commit without vi (or your $EDITOR) popping up with the option to modify your commit message, but simply reusing the previous message?


Since Git 1.7.9 you can also use git commit --amend --no-edit to get your result.

Note that this will not include metadata from the other commit such as the timestamp or tag, which may or may not be important to you.
