A poor choice of a pronoun, I think. It is referring to the file's state as of the specified commit. You can make sure that you're resolving to the correct version of the file by looking at the ID of the commit, i.e. 8fe6d79... and comparing it with the rightmost column of SourceTree

By clicking the OK button, you'd be keeping 8fe6d79...'s version of the file.
