Subject Re: Git Push Summary
Date Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:40:21 GMT
I tried to look at what happened more closely today, but couldn't
quite figure it out. I did complete a merge from the current HEAD of
1.6 to 1.7 (using -sours, after verifying that it was appropriate),
and on to master. This doesn't restore the lost commit that was
previously pushed (b83f88caf), but if others are satisfied, I'm fine
with it how it is now.

Just please try to be careful from now on, and avoid force pushing. If
something was pushed by mistake, please push a reverse commit created
with 'git revert <commit>'.

967100dda was committed by Christopher on Friday 17 July. Hope this helps reconstruct if anything
was overwritten. Sorry.

a very good reason, discussed on the list first).
