Why does git revert complain about a missing -m option?

So I’m working on a project with other people, and there’s multiple github forks being worked on. Someone just made a fix for a problem and I merged with his fork, but then I realized that I could find a better solution. I want to revert the commit I just made. I tried doing this […]

There is nothing changed, but eclipse egit marks the file as changed

I’m using eclipse egit with github. I found something strange that I didn’t change anything, but egit marked the file as “changed”. See the images: the file “run.bat” is marked as “changed” Compare with “file in Git index”, you can see nothing is different Compare with “file in HEAD”, you can see nothing is different […]

How can I rollback a github repository to a specific commit?

My github has 100 commits in it right now. I need to rollback the repository to commit 80, and remove all the subsequent ones. Why? This repo is supposed to be for merging from miscellaneous users. A bunch of merges went in as commits from me, due to excessive editing. That was due to a […]

git: 'credential-cache' is not a git command

It seems like the instructions are wrong, because every time I git push origin master I get this error: git: ‘credential-cache’ is not a git command. See ‘get –help’. … at which point I am forced to enter my username and password. […]

Does deleting a branch in git remove it from the history?

In svn, you can easily recover a branch by reverting the delete operation (reverse merge). Like all deletes in svn, the branch is never really deleted, it’s just removed from the current […]

Is the SHA-1 of commits calculated based only on the content of the tree?

For the sake of an experiment, lets say your git log identifies the following commits commit 16bc8486fb34cf9a6faf0f7df606ae72ad9ea438 // added 2nd file commit 9188f9a25b045f130b08888bc3f638099fa7f212 // initial commit After committing, .git/refs/heads/master points to 16bc8486fb34cf9a6faf0f7df606ae72ad9ea438. Let’s say, after this, i manually edit the .git/refs/heads/master file to point to 9188f9a25b045f130b08888bc3f638099fa7f212 At this point, git status recognizes that a new […]
