App::Pinto::Command::revert - revert stack to a prior revision
pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT revert [OPTIONS] [STACK] [REVISION]
!! THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL !!
This command restores the head of the stack to a prior state by creating a new revision that matches the prior state. See the reset command to move the head back to a prior state and discard subsequent revisions.
The arguments are the name of the stack and/or the id of the revision to revert to. If the revision id is not specified, it defaults to the immediate parent of head revision of the stack. If the stack is not specified, then it defaults to whichever stack is currently marked as the default. The stack can also be specified using the
--stack option. Some examples:
pinto ... revert # Revert default stack to previous revision pinto ... revert af01256e # Revert default stack to revision af01256e pinto ... revert mystack af01256e # Revert mystack to revision af0125e
Go through all the motions, but do not actually commit any changes to the repository. At the conclusion, a diff showing the changes that would have been made will be displayed. Use this option to see how upgrades would potentially impact the stack.
Force reversion even if the revision is not actually an ancestor. Normally, you can only revert to a revision that the stack has actually been at. This option only has effect if you specify a target revision argument.
- -m TEXT
Use TEXT as the revision history log message. If you do not use the
--messageoption or the
--use-default-messageoption, then you will be prompted to enter the message via your text editor. Use the
VISUALenvironment variables to control which editor is used. A log message is not required whenever the
--dry-runoption is set, or if the action did not yield any changes to the repository.
- -s NAME
Peform reversion on the stack with the given NAME. Defaults to the name of whichever stack is currently marked as the default stack. Use the stacks command to see the stacks in the repository. This option is silently ignored if the stack is specified as a command argument instead.
Use the default value for the revision history log message. Pinto will generate a semi-informative log message just based on the command and its arguments. If you set an explicit message with
--use- default-messageoption will be silently ignored.
