git-restore-mtime - Restore original modification time of files based on the date of the
most recent commit that modified them
git-restore-mtime [-h] [--quiet] [--verbose] [--force] [--merge]
[--skip-missing] [--no-directories] [--test] [--commit-time]
[--work-tree WORKDIR] [--git-dir GITDIR]
Restore original modification time of files based on the date of the most recent commit
that modified them. Useful when generating release tarballs.
only modify paths (dirs or files) matching PATHSPEC, relative to current
directory. Default is to modify all non-ignored, tracked files.
show help message and exit
suppress informative messages and summary statistics.
print additional information for each processed file. Overwrites --quiet.
force execution on trees with uncommitted changes.
include merge commits. Leads to more recent mtimes and more files per commit, thus
with the same mtime (which may or may not be what you want). Including merge
commits may lead to less commits being evaluated (all files are found sooner),
which improves performance, sometimes substantially. But since merge commits are
usually huge, processing them may also take longer, sometimes substantially. By
default merge logs are only used for files missing from regular commit logs.
do not try to find missing files. If some files were not found in regular commit
logs, by default it retries using merge commit logs for these files (if --merge
was not used already). This option disables this behavior, which may slightly
improve performance, but files found only in merge commits will not be updated.
do not update directory mtime for files created, renamed or deleted in it. Note:
just modifying a file will not update its directory mtime.
test run: do not actually update any file
use commit time instead of author time
