Remove an intermediate GIT commit
I have an intermediate git commit which i have merged into the code now. It happened by mistake. I have 2 options:
- Delete the project from gerrit, for which i have to install the delete-project plug in
- Delete the commit from the GIT repository.
I would like to have suggestions on using the second option as i do not have the admin access to install the plugin.
I would like to keep the commit 1 and delete the commit 2. The commit 2 is a direcotry which has many number of files in it.
Any suggestions ?
