git pull alternates between two different origin/master branches
I'm currently working on a git repository where something went wrong. Everytime I perform a pull, the origin alternates between two different master branches:
+ 9a557eb...32d3b15 HEAD -> origin/HEAD (forced update)
32d3b15..9a557eb master -> origin/master
So yeah, I know, there has been a rewrite and that one should not rewrite the history. Anyway, I can't change that anymore, and now I get this strange behaviour. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this problem and why this happens? Besides: refs/remotes/origin/HEAD does point to refs/remotes/origin/master in both cases, but the origin/master SHA alternates.
Let's say I have this situation in git: B---D---F---H---J---K--->topic / / / A---C---E---G---I--->master After getting as far as commit F, I submit the topic branch for review. The reviewer ma
