Fix git commit message

I often forget to reference issues or documentation in commit messages, how to fix them?

To fix the latest commit message run

1
$ git commit --amend

edit and save the buffer. Done.

Want to edit an old commit message?

If you find a mistake in an older commit, but still one that you have not published yet to origin, you use git rebase interactive mode, with git rebase -i marking the change that requires correction with edit.
