# Setting date at commit time:
GIT_COMMITTER_DATE="Tue Feb 7 22:47:34 2012 -0800" git commit -m "Ignore stuff" --date "Tue Feb 7 22:47:34 2012 -0800"
# Changing date for historical commit:
git filter-branch --env-filter 'if [ $GIT_COMMIT = <commit-id> ]
then
export GIT_AUTHOR_DATE="Tue Feb 7 22:47:34 2012 -0800"
export GIT_COMMITTER_DATE="Tue Feb 7 22:47:34 2012 -0800"
