You need to commit every your change, sometimes revert it, etc.
Of course, you can rebase at the end, but that's inconvenient.

It makes the action in "check:committed" blank so the check is skipped.

(Note: do not forget to remove it once you are satisfied with your changes
so it is not committed to Git ;-))
