How do I change the git branch from which I branched?
I was working on a feature branch and I did a
git checkout -b feature/other-feature, did some work, committed it and then pushed it to origin feature/other-feature on github.
When I created a pull request from the other-feature branch on github I realised that it showed a load of commits from the original feature branch - commits that should rightfully be merged to develop from the original branch.
I think what I did wrong was to omit
git checkout develop before I did
git checkout -b feature/other-feature and so what I think I want to do to correct this situation is rebase other-feature onto develop.
But given that I've pushed my mistake to origin and other people have clones of this repo, do I need to rebase or do something else?
