Clean up Git after Drupal module update
If you upgrade a Drupal module using Drush, you get may get new files and/or some files will be modified. It may also delete files that are no longer needed.
To get clean git status, you need to do a two stage commit:
shows all the new, modified and deleted files. Add all the files to the git repository:
git add .
to stage all the new and modified files:
git commit -m "Upgraded Module to version X.X"
will commit all the new and modified files.:
now shows only the deleted files To stage all the deleted files:
git add -u
This will stage the deleted files for removal. Then do a second commit to remove the files:
git commit -m "Remove deleted files after upgrade"
