I think it would help to know what exact commands you ran, and have an example of what you want to undo. My quick testing suggests that the man page for git-init is correct when it states that Running git init in an existing repository is safe. It will not overwrite things that are already there. /M -- Magnus Therning OpenPGP: 0x927912051716CE39 email: mag...@therning.org jabber: mag...@therning.org twitter: magthe http://therning.org/magnus If our ideas of intellectual property are wrong, we must change them, improve them and return them to their original purpose.
