I like the general idea, and if we had a commit pretty format
"oneline", then something like this would make it look nicer.
Totally untested. I acquired your habit of coding in my e-mail
. git-sh-setup-script || die "Not a git archive"
rev=$(git-rev-parse --verify --revs-only "$@") &&
commit=$(git-rev-parse --verify --revs-only "$commit^0") || exit
if git-diff-tree -R -p $commit | git-apply --index &&
msg=$(git-rev-list --pretty=oneline --max-count=1 $commit)
echo "Revert $msg"
echo "This reverts $commit commit."
test "$rev" = "$commit" ||
echo "(original 'git revert' arguments: $@)"
} | git commit
# Now why did it fail?
parents=`git-cat-file commit "$commit" 2>/dev/null |
sed -ne '/^$/q;/^parent /p' |
case $parents in
0) die "Cannot revert the root commit nor non commit-ish" ;;
1) die "The patch does not apply" ;;
*) die "Cannot revert a merge commit" ;;
