       git-write-tree - Create a tree object from the current index

       git write-tree [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]

       Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new tree
       object is printed to standard output.

       The index must be in a fully merged state.

       Conceptually, git write-tree sync()s the current index contents into a
       set of tree files. In order to have that match what is actually in your
       directory right now, you need to have done a git update-index phase
       before you did the git write-tree.

	   Normally git write-tree ensures that the objects referenced by the
	   directory exist in the object database. This option disables this

	   Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory <prefix>. This
	   can be used to write the tree object for a subproject that is in
	   the named subdirectory.
