Don't we already do that? Warning: you are leaving N commits behind, not connected to any of your branches: ... list of commits to be lost ... If you want to keep them by creating a new branch, this may be a good time to do so with: git branch new_branch_name xxxxxx Switched to branch 'master' -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
