That is a good reason. However, for your information there is the variant “git commit --amend”, which as the option suggests amends the current commit. Just “git add“ the files you changed and run “git commit --amend”. It also lets you edit the commit message. After discovering this option, I find I am less fearful of making premature commits, since they are easily fixed. (But not after pushing, of course. That way lies madness.)
