Ok, thanks for the advice (learning more than the *very* basics of git
is on my todo list). So would I just do 'git revert
4a4bc9db5c3d824edea51495b8b3d2cd860d260c'. That comes up with:
fatal: Commit a00c0019ef859d52834bfd75f61046c5a7583650 is a merge but
no -m option was given.
I'm not sure what to put for the -m option. Should it just be a 1?

One of the merges was for the new name I added in debian/copyright
(a00c0019ef859d52834bfd75f61046c5a7583650). Do I need to revert this
merge and readd the name to debian/copyright or should I just leave it
as it is at the moment?
