Hi,

I managed to do the following:

git checkout master
Branch master set up to track remote branch master from origin.
Switched to a new branch 'master'

Then I merged release-2.2.16 to this branch. When done I pushed it.

I checked and remote master now contains my changes.

Thanks for all help!
