GIT: How to add a file later to a commit?

+2 votes

How can I add a file later to a commit? I created a new branch and submitted a commit with 2 files.

I observed, that one more file should have been submitted with this commit, so I would like to add a file to an earlier commit.

Any solution for this?

If it's the latest commit you want to amend, then have a look att git commit --amend. If it's not the latest commit you can start with an interactive rebase (git rebase -i), mark the commit you want to change for 'edit', and then use git commit --amend.

Is it possible to add custom metadata to Git commit object?
Such metadata should be ignored by Git commands, but could be used by a 3-party tool which knows the format and knows where to look.

I assume that this should be possible, given that Git objects are actually patches, and patches can contain additional details. But can this be done with the help of Git commands?
