Git: continue repository history from previous commit
Let's say the master branch of my repository looks like this:
* commit 75e259944814a102d6362eaf42fd4ff09d839865
| Bad commit
* commit 0307a5c4e623c584898c44d243a50bb02c91aa9e
| Good commit 1.
* commit 98ef0e69e3e5cd51ff5e24c1df616703272c5a79
| Good commit 1.
The bad commit has been pushed to the central repository and distributed. I want to continue the history from the last good commit. When I am done, I would like the history to look like
* commit 0626f793ff7ba847e7663fe88de6c6a2d597dc73
| Continuing development.
| * commit 75e259944814a102d6362eaf42fd4ff09d839865
| | Bad commit
* | commit 0307a5c4e623c584898c44d243a50bb02c91aa9e
| Good commit 2.
* commit 98ef0e69e3e5cd51ff5e24c1df616703272c5a79
| Good commit 1.
That is, the development continues from the last "good" commit. Can I safely achieve this even though the "bad" commit has been distributed among the developers?
