In the git commit man page:
Usually recording a commit that has the exact same tree as its
sole parent commit is a mistake, and the command prevents you from
making such a commit. This option bypasses the safety, and is
primarily for use by foreign SCM interface scripts."
By reading: "the command prevents" I understand that a new commit is
not created, and "This option bypasses" that it is instead created.
Perhaps my reading was a bit straightforward, but a man page is not a
sort of ancient holy writing that the reader has to sift every word to
understand hidden meanings, it should be something
clear and plain.
