Edit commit messages, authors, and timestamps during git-rebase
git-fiddleis a wrapper around
git-rebase(1)that allows editing of commit information straight from the
git-rebaseeditor, such as the author date, author name and commit message. This makes it trivial to edit a whole range of commits, shift them through time or alter ownership.

Usage is almost identical to that of
$ git fiddle -h git-fiddle - edit commit meta information during an *interactive* rebase.
git-fiddle(1)' is a lightweight wrapper aroundgit-rebase(1)' that annotates each commit with its author date, the author name, as well as the commit message. Changes to any of these will then be applied using an 'exec' script during the git-rebase sequence.
