Name: rebase_onto Level: 41 Difficulty: ** You have created your branch from `wrong_branch` and already made some commits, and you realise that you needed to create your branch from `master`. Rebase your commits onto `master` branch so that you don't have `wrong_branch` commits.
Here is how you would transplant a topic branch based on one branch to another, to pretend that you forked the topic branch from the latter branch, using rebase --onto. First let's assume your topic is based on branch next. For example, a feature developed in topic depends on some functionality which is found in next. o---o---o---o---o master \ o---o---o---o---o next \ o---o---o topic We want to make topic forked from branch master; for example, because the functionality on which topic depends was merged into the more stable master branch. We want our tree to look like this: o---o---o---o---o master | \ | o'--o'--o' topic \ o---o---o---o---o next We can get this using the following command: git rebase --onto master next topic
