So I made a booboo and already pushed a merge commit.
The merged branch had a few commits that where not ready for develop.
After reverting the merge one commit needed to be reapplied.
But a merge wont work, because it already is merged (and reverted).
What you can do is a cherry pick.
How I created the problem
git merge branch git push origin develop
Here there was no way back, accept rebasing but that’s still out of my comfort zone (update dec-2019: still is).
How I solved it.
git revert eaf8c471 -m2 git cherry-pick fa9a6b0
Cherry pick just straight up applies the changes made in the files.
Where a merge applies the git changes.
Keep in mind this will only help if you need a handful of commits reapplied. Otherwise you will need to find an other way.
Or cherry pick a lot…
