from what I can tell, you didn't use --force.

you haven't buggered anything, you committed 5 changes you didn't want.

This is not the end of the world.

You can simply apply apply a reverse diff of all those 5 changes and
that will be the end of it.

I disagree about totally removing the 5 commits has if it never
existed. It would bugger the repo for anyone who has updated their
And it really doesn't matter if your commits are in the history.

It wouldn't be the first time someone committed something only to
reverse it later.

as long as no --force are used, I'm okay with anything...
