If you have `git commit -a` on changes and then change your mind about
what you did, then first realise that not all is lost! What you want
is to rewrite history. You should read about `git rebase -i`
carefully, ideally in more than one place and then proceed with
caution. A good place to start with rebasing is
In this particular case though. Since you have so little history to
deal with, it might just be easier to start over on a new repo
instead. It depends on the nature of the changes you made...
