How does one push 0.4 of a commit?


Speaking of GitHub, I noticed this delightful graph on a new private repo.

The y-axis denotes the number of commits, which for me is one.

For those with screen readers, they’ve interpolated the other values as 0.2, 0.4. 0.6, and 0.8. I guess when you’re upper bound to 1, what else are you going to put along there?

Still, I’d love to see how one does a fraction of a commit :). I wouldn’t want to ask too loudly though, in case that creepy as all hell Octocat were the one to respond. I would have thought anime would have inoculated me against such feelings, yet here we are.
