git-write-tree - Create a tree object from the current index
'git write-tree' [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]
Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new
tree object is printed to standard output.
The index must be in a fully merged state.
Conceptually, 'git write-tree' sync()s the current index contents
into a set of tree files.
In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right
now, you need to have done a 'git update-index' phase before you did the
'git write-tree'.
Normally 'git write-tree' ensures that the objects referenced by the
directory exist in the object database. This option disables this
Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory
`<prefix>`. This can be used to write the tree object
for a subproject that is in the named subdirectory.
