10 SYNOPSIS
11 --------
12 'git-write-tree'
13
14 DESCRIPTION
15 -----------
16 Creates a tree object using the current cache.
17
18 The cache must be merged.
19
20 Conceptually, "git-write-tree" sync()s the current directory cache contents
21 into a set of tree files.
22 In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right
23 now, you need to have done a "git-update-cache" phase before you did the
24 "git-write-tree".
