Git merge Spaghetti - How to fix it?
It seems like we've done a bit of merge "spaghetti" with git.
We are new to this and would basically like to have the following branches
Master A - B - C
Core / A - B - C - D - E - F
iPhone A - B - C
But it seems like at some point we merged master into core, then core back to master, then master back to core .. not sure what / how / why did this happen .. but I would love some help to put this back on track without messing around too much !
Any help is appreciated.
