This is what git status shows after I modified the file and ran "git add":
# On branch fix99
# Changes to be committed:
# (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
# modified: COMMON/pom.xml
This is what git commit with amend shows:
git commit COMMON/pom.xml --amend
# On branch fix99
# No changes
You asked to amend the most recent commit, but doing so would make
it empty. You can repeat your command with --allow-empty, or you can
remove the commit entirely with "git reset HEAD^".
