I was looking through the relatively new Git Merge - Definitive Guide, hoping to recommend it to some of my co-workers to get a bit deeper in their understanding of merge.
I’ve come across a few bugs, but am struggling to determine where to submit them. I couldn’t find this article in the git repo, is there some other CMS system for the /news path? Is it possible to submit issues there?
The first things I’ve seen in the “Hands On” section:
- the graphic showing the result of the default FF merge doesn’t show main pointing to the new commit (I think it is the wrong image).
- There are some mis-uses of
- When undoing the last commit, the command should read
git reset --hard HEAD~1, but one of the second dash is a 0x96 “En Dash” while the first is the normal 0x2D “minus”. This causes an error if the user copy-pastes this code snippet.
- The graphic for “The history after using
git reset --hard HEAD~1” matches the caption, however, immediately before that it indicates it should be looking at the
new_featurebranch, so if that is the case, the HEAD should be pointing there.
