Hello, I am totally new to this git and repositories thing but I can see the benifits right away.

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.
