Undo a Git merge?
Within my master branch, I did a
git merge some-other-branch locally, but never pushed the changes to origin master. I didn't mean to merge, so I'd like to undo it. When doing a
git status after my merge, I was getting this message:
# On branch master
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 4 commits.
Based upon some instructions I found, I tried running
git revert HEAD -m 1
but now I'm getting this message with
# On branch master
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 5 commits.
I don't want my branch to be ahead by any number of commits. How do I get back to that point?
