"git commit --date" is completely missing. It does not appear in "man git commit". Trying to use --date produces the following error message:

error: unknown option `date=......'

See http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-commit.html for the complete man page.

Additional info:


Steps to reproduce:

> man git commit
Search failed: date

> mkdir example
> cd example
> git init
> echo 'just a test' > test
> git add test
> git commit --date="Mon, 08 Feb 2010 12:00:00 +0000" -m "Won't do this."
error: unknown option `date=Mon, 08 Feb 2010 12:00:00 +0000'

This task depends upon

My apologies. I had first contacted upstream, and they did not mention it was a future thing. No complaints if this is closed.
