How do I reconnect a Git branch that has separated from master? (And duplicated its parents?)
This is a complicated situation, but essentially what has happened here is that our branch has become separated from master. So essentially:
A - B - C master
X - Y - Z feature
has turned into:
A - B - C master
(A) - (B) - X - Y - Z feature
The SHAs are the same for A/(A) and B/(B). This is exactly how it appears in GitK. At this point, I'm just trying to essentially put it back in the same order it was previously. Unfortunately, since the SHAs appear to be identical, I don't know how I can manipulate X to branch out of B instead of (B). I honestly don't know where to begin attempting this recovery. How can I reconnect the two branches at commit B?
Note that I have seen this question but it seems to be a slightly different issue, because the sha-1 of B and (B) are the same, since it has not been changed.
