Allow empty commit be created

82 votes

As a GItKraken user, I would like to avoid the need to resort to use Git command line client to submit empty commit with summary/body/footer messages using syntax such as the following:

git commit --allow-empty -m "summaryText" -m "bodyText" -m "footerText"

Such empty commit allows users to implement CI webhooks that depend upon such empty commit (along with some patterns of annotated commit msgs) to resolve build failures due to some non-conformance of our build rules regarding commit msgs.

Currently, when user has no code changes to commit, GItKraken UI does not allow an empty commit be created, and the commit button is disabled.
