dgarr: ok, sorry to be a spoil sport though
jepler: np, is there a simple way that i can revert one file change in git?
dgarr: not a whole commit?
dgarr: you can go back to the contents of a specific file as it was in a specific commit with: git checkout ref filename
in that case you'd choose the ref before the one that changed it
but you'll lose any other change introduced by subsequent commits
there's git-revert for reverting an entire commit
(add a new commit that undoes the changes of the original commit, so that changes after that commit are still there)
if rev r introduced the change you don't want, then something like git diff rev rev^ -- path | patch -R will undo just the change to path in rev
git revert does it -- thanks
cradek: how close to usable is your pluto-servo lathe?
my current machine can't run the pluto hardware, and I'll soon want to test changes to parport location/registration on a pluto
(I'm doing what I did in master for hal_parport: optionally cooperate with linux parport_pc)
jepler: it is on a shelf. it just needs to be all plugged in.
cradek: OK, I'll let you know if/when I need your help
my system is probably just about as easy to put back together
