Hello, I am totally new to this git and repositories thing but I can see the benifits right away.
What is the best way to completely revert to a previous commit? Let's say I want to go back three commits ago and start over from that point. I'm using SourceTree.
If you've already pushed these commits to a remote then you probably shouldn't be doing this, because the commits could already have been seen by someone else, which will then cause them problems if they're effectively orphaned and no longer part of the branch going forward.
If you know for sure that no-one except you has seen these commits then you can push your branch to the remote to bring it back into sync with your own local repo. What the reset is doing is moving the branch pointer backwards, orphaning the commits you made before, and which will get garbage collected eventually if nothing continued to point to them.
