Hi there,

I want to change from release-4-5-patches to master

I am trying:

git reset master
git checkout master

git pull
error: Your local changes to 'include/resall.h' would be overwritten by
merge.  Aborting.
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.

git stash
Saved working directory and index state WIP on master: 5e3473a Merge branch
HEAD is now at 5e3473a Merge branch 'release-4-5-patches'

But I don't want branch 'release-4-5-patches'!

Indeed, I am finding git very annoying to use.

All I wanted in svn lingo is to change to a branch and if there's conflict,
ignore all changes in my side and revert any modification to what's in the

Is it possible with git?
