Hoi,

Found a small issue with git filter-branch not removing empty commits
if they are the first commit in the tree. Find test script attached
and example output below.

I think the issue is in the function git_commit_non_empty_tree, which
doesn't handle this case. I think something like the following should
work:

 git_commit_non_empty_tree()
 {
+        if test $# = 1 && test -z "$(git ls-tree $1)" ; then
+                skip_commit "$@"
+        fi
         if test $# = 3 && test "$1" = $(git rev-parse "$3^{tree}"); then
                 map "$3"
         else
                 git commit-tree "$@"
         fi
 }

If you're wondering how I got here, it was by using git svn to import
a tree once converted by cvs2svn, which added empty commits to the svn
repo to indicate the creation of branches.

Have a nice day,
