Can git split a commit that was upstream using a revert?
I have a repo that is pushed to a remote and downloaded by others. Within the history is a bug introduced by a commit I made. Embarrassingly that commit it unwieldy (too much logic in one commit). Aside from going back in time and whacking my past self with a wet noodle the proper thing to do would be an interactive rebase to split the commit into several.
Sadly this has already been pushed and cloned by others (who would be very unpleased if I rebased from underneath them). So I thought I could branch, revert commit, cherry-pick commit, interactive rebase, then merge. Is this the best option or am I missing something?
Can I split a published commit by reverting then splitting?
A--B--C--D--E--F (master origin/master)
^- WTF commit
A--B--C--D--E--F-------------------M (master origin/master)
^- revert commit C
