How can we remove/turn off the 'merging' notice from SourceTree or other git client?

We converted several thousands of files from another VCS to Git, then checked them out and pushed them to Bitbucket repos.  Some of these files now show as 'merging' in SourceTree and other clients.  This blocks merging of new versions.  How can we turn off this flag to allow merging?

Hi Frank!

Have you performed any merge operations in these new repositories? If so, you may be able to cancel the merge. I'm not too familiar with Sourcetree myself, but you could try this command to abort a merge:

git merge --abort

If that fails, you could try

git reset --hard HEAD

Note that any uncommitted changes in the repository will be removed by this command.

Hope this helps!
