Git: Changing commit messages

To change the commit message of the latest (unpushed, unmerged) commit, you can use
git commit –amend

To change the commit message of an earlier (unpushed, unmerged) commit [COMMIT], you can do
git rebase -i COMMIT~

For a current version of git, you can simply mark the line with "reword", and git will ask you later for the new message.

For older versions:

  • mark the line with edit
  • save the file
  • do a git commit --amend when rebasing stops at the relevant commit
  • git rebase --continue
