4NAME
5----
6git-revert - Revert an existing commit
7
8SYNOPSIS
9--------
10'git-revert' [--edit | --no-edit] [-n] <commit>
11
12DESCRIPTION
13-----------
14Given one existing commit, revert the change the patch introduces, and record a
15new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
16modifications from the HEAD commit).
17
18OPTIONS
19-------
20<commit>::
21 Commit to revert.
22
23-e|--edit::
24 With this option, `git-revert` will let you edit the commit
25 message prior committing the revert. This is the default if
26 you run the command from a terminal.
27
28--no-edit::
29 With this option, `git-revert` will not start the commit
30 message editor.
31
32-n|--no-commit::
33 Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
34 a commit log message stating which commit was reverted.
35 This flag applies the change necessary to revert the
36 named commit to your working tree, but does not make the
37 commit. In addition, when this option is used, your
38 working tree does not have to match the HEAD commit.
39 The revert is done against the beginning state of your
40 working tree.
41+
42This is useful when reverting more than one commits'
43effect to your working tree in a row.
