How do I edit an incorrect commit message in Git?

git commit --amend -m "New commit message"

Used to amend the tip of the current branch. Prepare the tree object you would want to replace the latest commit as usual (this includes the usual -i/-o and explicit paths), and the commit log editor is seeded with the commit message from the tip of the current branch. The commit you create replaces the current tip -- if it was a merge, it will have the parents of the current tip as parents -- so the current top commit is discarded.

It is a rough equivalent for:

$ git reset --soft HEAD^ 
$ ... do something else to come up with the right tree ... 
$ git commit -c ORIG_HEAD


but can be used to amend a merge commit.

if you have better solution let me know via comments !
