Git Question

fatal: git-write-tree: error building trees

I did a

git pull
from a shared git repository, but something went really wrong, after I tried a
git revert
. Here is the situation now:

$ git stash

fatal: git-write-tree: error building trees
Cannot save the current index state


Is there a way to reset all that ?

Thanks

Answer

Use:

git reset--mixed

instead of git reset --hard. You will not lose any changes.
