Hello,

I'm new to git. 

I had posted my question earlier on StackOverflow, here: 
    
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44543219/git-revert-unable-to-undo-an-individual-commit-even-in-a-simple-case

To summarize the problem described in above question: Even a *revert* of a 
commit that I perceived to be "simple enough" (in the middle of a series of 
commits) was failing. Apparently, the underlying reason behind my failed 
*revert* was the "context" that is always used by the *revert* operation.

While I more or less understand that reason now, I have a another related 
question suitable for this group. 



*Question: 1. *Would having a new option (such as *--ignore-patch-context *) 
while doing *git revert* make sense? This option when used would carry out 
the *revert* mechanically/blindly and leave the result in an uncommitted 
state (with maybe a warning on the console), allowing the user to verify 
things for syntax and semantics before committing.  

2. Is there any documentation where such details of the operations (such as 
*revert*, *merge, *...) are described?

Regards,
/HS
