I committed my local changes and before doing a git push, did a git pull from origin master and then did a git push. However I see other's commits (different files that I didn't touch at all) as part of my commit log. Is there a way to exclude those files committed by others as part of my commit log? Or is it fine to go ahead and create a PR (and still exclude the unwanted files to be merged?)
i faced the same issue, the small mistake you might have made is you are comparing your branch with an incorrect branch. ie you created a branch named feature/test that needs to be merged with the branch "develop" instead you are comparing with master branch. check this.its not recomended to raise PR if your seeing some changes you haven't made.
