How to set git branch to state of another branch
I wish to set my
master branch to the exact state that my
tmp branch is at.
There is incorrect changes committed on the master branch, but even after merging the tmp branch those mistakes still persists.
I've tried (on master):
git checkout tmp
git reset --hard xxxxxx
but that also fails. It's unfortunate that git is this hard to do something so simple. What must I do to fix my master branch?
EDIT I've tried to find the problem and it's the one highlighted that is wrong. It seems I shouldn't have done that reverse. (My temp branch doesn't have that reverse, which is why it's probably working.) So how do I reverse a revert?
