Git Question

Point branch to new commit

(This question is the opposite of this one)

How can I go from this

dev C - D
/
master A - B


to this?

dev D
/
master A - B - C


I know I'm going to kick myself when I see the answer, but for the moment I'm a bit stuck...

Answer

Solution

git checkout master
git merge C

With C being the SHA1 of commit C.

Result

                 D (dev)
                /
master A - B - C (move master HEAD)

It should be a fast-forward merge.
