git-stamp - Stamp the last commit message


git stamp [<options>] <id> [<messages>]


Lets you amend the last commit with a stamp message.
The command appends a message with its identifier to the last commit message.

With this flag, all the related stamps with the same identifier will be removed first before the new one gets appended.
