The "reparent" command:
Create a "parent" tag that causes CHECK-IN to be interpreted as a child of PARENT. If multiple PARENTs are listed, then the first is the primary parent and others are merge ancestors.
This is an experts-only command. It is used to patch up a repository that has been damaged by a shun or that has been pieced together from two or more separate repositories. You should never need to reparent during normal operations.
Reparenting is accomplished by adding a parent tag. So to undo the reparenting operation, simply delete the tag.
- Make database entries but do not add the tag artifact. So the reparent operation will be undone by the next "fossil rebuild" command.
- Print the tag that would have been created but do not actually change the database in any way.
- --date-override DATETIME
- Set the change time on the control artifact
- --user-override USER
- Set the user name on the control artifact
