I often post a review as [WIP] something something so that teammates can make early comments on a design or refactoring. When the change is done and ready for real review, I need to go into the phabricator interface and edit the summary and title manually. I should be able to edit the local head commit using git amend and upload the new title and summary to phabricator using arc diff.
$ arc help diff ... --edit Supports: git, hg When updating a revision under git, edit revision information before updating. ... --verbatim Supports: hg, git When creating a revision, try to use the working copy commit message verbatim, without prompting to edit it. When updating a revision, update some fields from the local commit message. ...
Do these solve your problem?
Yes, I just tested 'arc diff --edit --verbatim' and it does what I want, thanks! Thanks for the quick reply. I'd downgrade this ticket to just please add this to the documentation so that searches for words such as "summary" and "title" find the right thing. I did read the complete documentation (including arc help diff) before asking, and missed that "update some fields from the local commit message" meant "update title and summary".
