How to remove first n commit messages in git?
I was configuring git and during this phase created a few test commits (I was commiting a change of 1 character with pointless commit message). After these I was using git and created a lot of normal commits. So right now when I review commit history with
git rev-list --all --pretty and scroll far enough I see these terrible first N commits.
I was trying to get rid of them and I found suggestions to redo git (which is not a valid idea for me). I also found that the first commit is special so I can not remove it.
But is there a way to remove first N commits (excluding the very first one) and rename the first one?
