You can now make an initial commit when you create an AWS CodeCommit repository in your AWS CloudFormation stack.  

Previously, CodeCommit repositories created through CloudFormation were empty. Now you can provide a ZIP file with the content you want added to the newly created CodeCommit repository, such as README or sample code. CodeCommit will unpack and add that code to the newly created repository.

For more information about using CodeCommit as part of a CloudFormation template, see the documentation
