Allow git-stash to save only the content of what's in staging area.
No working tree files (unstaged or untracked) will be added
to the stash nor will be modified then the opreration finishes.

Sorry for the double tag. This is not fully completed code. Wanted to
know if the community thinks it's something worth developing and if
I'm heading in the right direction in terms of the code that I'm
hitting.

Thanks!

I am not sure if you explained how useful the "feature" being
proposed is, which is a very important skill to exercise to entice
readers to start reading and helping your code.

Why is it useful to be able to do this?  It is unclear at least to
me.

By the way, per "git help cli", the name for this new option that is
more in line with the rest of the system would be "--cached"; it
would tell Git to work only on the data in the index (as opposed to
the working tree files).
.

Fair enough. It's ok to explain here, right? There's no simple way to stash only
what you have on index while retaining your working tree state.

I would do this to achieve it:
save what I have on the index somehow
$ git commit -m "will drop this revision later"

that revision I just created has what I want to stash, actually

$ git stash save -m "want to keep this on working tree when I finish"

my work tree is now clean (perhaps with untracked files)

$ git reset soft HEAD~1 # get what I had on index before

now I can stash... this is what I originally intended

$ git stash save -m "what I really meant to stash"

and now I need to get the working tree the way I had it when I started:

git stash pop stash@{1}


All of that with git stash push --index-only... well, git stash push --cached

Yes, absolutely.   How it works is 

 - an author comes up with a patch and its explanation and
   justificaiton, 

 - reviewers ask clarifications on what was unclear, point out what
   was wrong in the code, etc., and then 

 - the author responds with "here is what I meant", "yeah, you're
   right that the code is wrong--would it be right to write it this
   way?", and/or "not really, the code is OK because ...", etc.

All that exchange is to come up with a more polished version that
has correct code that is explained and justified in a clear manner.

The next iteration the author then sends would of course include the
fixes to bugs pointed out during the review, but also would explain
and justify the change better---the explanation in the original did
not convey what the author wanted to tell, but the explanation the
author gave during the review discussion did so better, so the new
iteration can learn from that exchange.

> There's no simple way to stash only
> what you have on index while retaining your working tree state.

Yes, that much can be inferred from what it does ("there is no easy
way to do X, so I am adding X").

The question is why would one want to do X in the first place.

IIUC, the simplest workflow using the new feature may go like this:

	$ edit file ;# edit a bit
	$ git add file
	$ edit file ;# even even more
	$ git stash --cached

After all of the above is done, "git stash list" may show that there
is a single stash that records the changes you made to the file
right after you added it, without your further changes (because you
are taking what is in the index).  Your working tree has all the
changes you made to file, both before and after "git add", and your
index is clean.

After you got yourself into this state where your index is clean,
your working tree file has all changes, and your stash entry has
only the earlier half of the change, what are you going to do with
that stash entry?  If we learn the answer to that question, perhaps
we may find (or we may even have) a better or easier way to achieve
whatever you were planning to do with that stash entry by some other
means---it might not even involve "git stash"---but without knowing
that, we cannot tell if the new feature is a good idea.

Thanks.

Actually, let this conversation burn in /dev/null. What I want to
achieve (stash only some changes and not all of them) can be done by
using git stash push providing pathspec.
