Changing git commit message after push (given that no one pulled from remote)
I have made a git commit and subsequent push. I would like to change the commit message. If i understand correctly, this is not advisable because someone might have pulled from the remote repository before i make such changes. What if i know that no one has pulled?
Is there a way to do this?
Please advise, any help is appreciated.
