[PATCH v2 2/2] rebase -i: introduce the 'break' command




From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@xxxxxx>

The 'edit' command can be used to cherry-pick a commit and then
immediately drop out of the interactive rebase, with exit code 0, to let
the user amend the commit, or test it, or look around.

Sometimes this functionality would come in handy *without*
cherry-picking a commit, e.g. to interrupt the interactive rebase even
before cherry-picking a commit, or immediately after an 'exec' or a
'merge'.

This commit introduces that functionality, as the spanking new 'break'
command.

 the files and/or the commit message, amend the commit, and continue
 rebasing.
 
+To interrupt the rebase (just like an "edit" command would do, but without
+cherry-picking any commit first), use the "break" command.
+
 If you just want to edit the commit message for a commit, replace the
 command "pick" with the command "reword".
