Reverting a pull request
You can revert a pull request after it's been merged to the upstream branch.
Reverting a pull request on GitHub creates a new pull request that contains one revert of the merge commit from the original merged pull request.
Note: You may need to use Git to manually revert the individual commits if:
- Reverting the pull request causes merge conflicts
- The original pull request was not originally merged on GitHub (for example, using a fast-forward merge on the command line)
- Under your repository name, click Pull requests.
- In the "Pull Requests" list, click the pull request you'd like to revert.
- Near the bottom of the pull request, click Revert.
- Merge the resulting pull request. For more information, see "Merging a pull request."
