Ah, this was a third-party commit by you.  The most frequent error here
is to apply a provided patch with

    git apply xxx.patch

instead of

    git apply --index xxx.patch

(only the latter will add new files to the repository).  However, given
that there also is a large commit message with a significantly different
AuthorDate than the CommitDate, it is more likely that this was applied
and tested as a complete commit using

    git am ...
So I don't really know.
