GIT equivalence of SVN Changelist?

Just curious if GIT has something like Subversions Changelist feature, its something that I find quite handy working with on the fly, I know I could run something like cat ‘changelistfileimade’ | xargs git update but am curious if there’s a built in method too? Cheers.

Avoid the effects of a revert commit in another Git branch while merging

Working with git flow. We have a co-worker who is not familiar with Git that accidentally merged develop into master yesterday. Develop has quite a few features that are launching with our next release, requiring a revert on the merge. This has created a commit which undoes all of the changes. When we merge master […]

git merge conflict due to renaming in two branches – how to fix & avoid in future?

I have two local branches master and dev. Both branches contained three folders: projectBeta project project_v1 I wanted to just keep projectBeta and remove project and project_v1 and then rename projectBeta as project. So that’s what I did separately on both branches, committing as I went along. All looked good until I tried to then […]

Automatically commit an empty .gitignore file after git init?

I would like to start off all my git repositories with an “empty” initial commit by simply touching an empty .gitignore file and committing it. My reasons are roughly the same as in this question. Baiscally, the first commit (the “tail”) has no parent commit, so various weird and unexpected things happen that would not […]

Moving master head to a branch

I have several feature branches and a master branch. Feature2 is done. Normally I would rebase (working with a remote SVN repo and would like to keep the history, so no regular merge) and ff-merge. But since master hasnt changed since I branched, I would like to move the master head (at E) to G. […]

Stage file by its file name, regardless of directory–Git

I have very nested directories in a project, and I’m a lazy programmer. Let’s say I have a file name EventEditor.foo I want to stage my file regardless of whether it’s in the root directory or ./src/holy/sweet/mother/of/baby/raptor/jesus/this/is/a/long/hiearchy/EventEditor.foo My goal would be to be all, “Yo Git, add EventEditor” and bam. It stages it with me […]
