Using git-remote-hg on windows

According to this answer https://stackoverflow.com/a/13354944/867294 it should be fairly easy to set up git to work with mercurial “no dependencies or anything”. This doesn’t seem to work all that smooth on Windows tough.

Reverting push to remote with sourcetree

I accidently pushed a feature branch to the remote master. Now I want to revert the master to the previous commit.
