is it possible to completely delete a Git branch?

I read that, normally, deleted branches can be resurrected. I’m looking for a way to completely obliterate a branch. One of the developers stuck 2Gb worth of assets inside that branch, which really is content and shouldn’t be inside the repo. Note: I’ve not merged it into master yet!

How should I apply the git-flow paradigm to my project?

I have started to use git flow and have some questions. In examples like here and here I see a release branch started and then several commits done before the release branch gets finished.

Cleaning a git branch with a poor-quality commit log

Rather than ask about specific git verbs (which the git documentation is based around), I’d like to ask what is the best approach for this particular task. I have a git branch with an ugly commit log, due to having been forced to commit to test the app. Lots of commits like: Fix typo Do […]

In git is it possible to merge from the master to a branch that was originally created from master after new code has been added to the master?

I’m not sure if this is a normal branching scenario but … suppose that I create a branch, say branch C, from master and then merge back other previously existing branches, say branches A and B, back into master, and I need some of the code from A and B in branch C then can […]
