-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 My limited git skills are proving to be insufficient today. Background: I made some code changes and committed them. I subsequently made more changes but now I'm thinking I /may/ have gone down the wrong path. I'd like to go back to the last commit, create a branch, and try another approach in that branch. How can I do that without losing the current changes in the event I want to come back to them? Presumably, if the new branch works then I'd merge it into master (and then I don't care about what happens to the current changes.) I suspect tmtowtdi.
`git revert` will take you back to a previous commit, by creating a 'revert' commit that revert your changes.
You can then revert the revert to get back your changes. I would: 1. revert 2. create a new branch3. go back to master and either merge the new branch in, or revert the revert
