14DESCRIPTION
15-----------
16Creates a tree object using the current cache.
17
18The cache must be merged.
19
20Conceptually, "git-write-tree" sync()s the current directory cache contents
21into a set of tree files.
22In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right
23now, you need to have done a "git-update-cache" phase before you did the
24"git-write-tree".

26OPTIONS
27-------
28--missing-ok::
29 Normally "git-write-tree" ensures that the objects referenced by the
30 directory exist in the object database. This option disables this check.
