Hi Everyone!

It has been about more than two weeks, since I joined the mailing
list. Till now I have contributed to the microproject - "Modernize the
test script" [1] that is accepted by Junio. Also I would like to Thank
you all for the help and feedback on my first patch series. I learned a
lot about the git command itself, how to work in a community with the
mailing list and will try my best to get involved in the review
discussions.

I have read the Outreachy projects and am interested in the project
"Improve droping and rewording commits in Git interactive rebase". I
spent some time understanding the project and have gone through its
detailed explanation in the issue[2].

As mentioned that the first task is to implement --reword option in
'git commit'. Regarding this, I am unable to understand how it will
work upon rebase --autosquash?

and regarding the task to include --drop option. In issue[2] it's
clear to add this as an option in git revert but at the Outreachy page
in the Internship task section, it's mentioned to implement --drop
option in git reset. So, there is a bit of confusion regarding the
correct way to implement.

I also looked into archives of the mailing list and found the
patches[3] submitted by Philip for --reword option in git commit and
need some more pointers about its status and how to start with its
code ?
Also, in the issue[2] as commented by Phillip regarding the patches[4]
that implements reword. I would like to know if I can start with that
mentioned work, if available.

Thanks and Regards,
Charvi
