<h2 id="_description">DESCRIPTION</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>Help parsing or adding <em>trailers</em> lines, that look similar to RFC 822 e-mail
headers, at the end of the otherwise free-form part of a commit
message.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>This command reads some patches or commit messages from either the
&lt;file&gt; arguments or the standard input if no &lt;file&gt; is specified. If
<code>--parse</code> is specified, the output consists of the parsed trailers.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Otherwise, this command applies the arguments passed using the
<code>--trailer</code> option, if any, to the commit message part of each input
file. The result is emitted on the standard output.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Some configuration variables control the way the <code>--trailer</code> arguments
are applied to each commit message and the way any existing trailer in
the commit message is changed. They also make it possible to
automatically add some trailers.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>By default, a <em>&lt;token&gt;=&lt;value&gt;</em> or <em>&lt;token&gt;:&lt;value&gt;</em> argument given
using <code>--trailer</code> will be appended after the existing trailers only if
the last trailer has a different (&lt;token&gt;, &lt;value&gt;) pair (or if there
is no existing trailer). The &lt;token&gt; and &lt;value&gt; parts will be trimmed
to remove starting and trailing whitespace, and the resulting trimmed
&lt;token&gt; and &lt;value&gt; will appear in the message like this:</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">
<div class="content">
<pre><code>token: value</code></pre>
</div></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>This means that the trimmed &lt;token&gt; and &lt;value&gt; will be separated by
<code>': '</code> (one colon followed by one space).</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>By default the new trailer will appear at the end of all the existing
trailers. If there is no existing trailer, the new trailer will appear
after the commit message part of the output, and, if there is no line
with only spaces at the end of the commit message part, one blank line
will be added before the new trailer.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Existing trailers are extracted from the input message by looking for
a group of one or more lines that (i) is all trailers, or (ii) contains at
least one Git-generated or user-configured trailer and consists of at
least 25% trailers.
The group must be preceded by one or more empty (or whitespace-only) lines.
The group must either be at the end of the message or be the last
non-whitespace lines before a line that starts with <em>---</em> (followed by a
space or the end of the line). Such three minus signs start the patch
part of the message. See also <code>--no-divider</code> below.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>When reading trailers, there can be whitespaces after the
token, the separator and the value. There can also be whitespaces
inside the token and the value. The value may be split over multiple lines with
each subsequent line starting with whitespace, like the "folding" in RFC 822.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Note that <em>trailers</em> do not follow and are not intended to follow many
rules for RFC 822 headers. For example they do not follow
the encoding rules and probably many other rules.</p></div>

This option tells which characters are recognized as trailer
separators. By default only <em>:</em> is recognized as a trailer
separator, except that <em>=</em> is always accepted on the command
line for compatibility with other git commands.
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The first character given by this option will be the default character
used when another separator is not specified in the config for this
trailer.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>For example, if the value for this option is "%=$", then only lines
using the format <em>&lt;token&gt;&lt;sep&gt;&lt;value&gt;</em> with &lt;sep&gt; containing <em>%</em>, <em>=</em>
or <em>$</em> and then spaces will be considered trailers. And <em>%</em> will be
the default separator used, so by default trailers will appear like:
<em>&lt;token&gt;% &lt;value&gt;</em> (one percent sign and one space will appear between
the token and the value).</p></div>

<dt class="hdlist1">
trailer.where

This option tells where a new trailer will be added.

<div class="paragraph"><p>This can be <code>end</code>, which is the default, <code>start</code>, <code>after</code> or <code>before</code>.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>If it is <code>end</code>, then each new trailer will appear at the end of the
existing trailers.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>If it is <code>start</code>, then each new trailer will appear at the start,
instead of the end, of the existing trailers.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>If it is <code>after</code>, then each new trailer will appear just after the
last trailer with the same &lt;token&gt;.</p></div>

first trailer with the same &lt;token&gt;.</p></div>

This option makes it possible to choose what action will be

trailer with the same (&lt;token&gt;, &lt;value&gt;) pair is above or below the line
where the new trailer will be added.</p></div>

with the same (&lt;token&gt;, &lt;value&gt;) pair is already in the message.</p></div>

the same (&lt;token&gt;, &lt;value&gt;) pair are already in the message.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>With <code>replace</code>, an existing trailer with the same &lt;token&gt; will be

the closest one (with the same &lt;token&gt;) to the place where the new one

off.</p></div>

replaced with the &lt;value&gt; part of an existing trailer with the same

line, when a <em>trailer.&lt;token&gt;.command</em> is configured, the command will
also be executed for each of these arguments. And the &lt;value&gt; part of
