Undo changes made in git commit and move them to a different branch
I have a commit that has made changes to files A,B,C,D,E. This commit has been pushed to a remote server.
I would like to take the changes to files C and E and move them to a separate branch as they were pushed while unstable and we will not have time to 'stabilize' them before release.
I suppose what I'm asking is to get a previous commit on C and E to the HEAD and have those changes made be put into their own branch on the side for now.
