[SOLVED] Git hates me!

Postby it0uchpods » Fri Jan 22, 2016 2:08 am

So due to a LARGE issue, I need the FGMEMBERS copy of the MD-88 reforked. You may have noticed that it is no longer linked to my copy, and I have NO WAY to access. When I pulled it, it messed up my FINALLY FIXED NAV DISPLAY!!!! and caused problems. I cannot push without pulling. This is due to a mistake I made earlier, and now I can't do shit about it.

Is there anyway to remove that repo and refork it?

OK
I just fixed this for you.
I sent you a PR for syncing purposes

WAIT! Ahh made another mistake. The problem here is that the copy in FGMEMBERS has a problem. I need to overwrite the FGMEMBERS copy with my copy. If I merge FGMEMBERS into mine, it causes a problem. Why? Don't know. I made a mistake with GIT, and there are changes that I shouldn't have made, and if I merge them, it breaks the aircraft. That is why i wanted it reforked, as right now I have no way to update it, due to the broken problems that I am now forced to pull.

Thanks Israel, as usual you were right, I was wrong. Git is now working great for me again!

Thanks!

don't worry. Its just a matter of practice.
When in doubt, dont attempt what you tried doing there.
(as in regenerating a repository from scratch)
That causes tons of trouble to collaborators, and has additional issues with your git history.

Good thing is that everyone that cloned or forked is a backup, but you were doing things that may complicate your life.

The easy way to go is: When in doubt; stop first, ask here second. We'll figure out your way out of the issue.
