Hi Alex,

You can do this with a slight modification to the instructions you posted, if you follow the steps under "Resolving the conflict between git branches".

  • Steps 1 to 4 should be the same.
  • At this point, instead of resolving conflicts (as demonstrated in steps 5 and 6), you want to delete the file (for example by running "rm <path_to_your_file>").
  • Steps 7 and 8 will be the same as in the linked instructions.

It seems counterintuitive to "git add" a file that you want to delete, as step 7 instructs, but this will tell git you want to track the change you've made, which in this case was to delete the file.
