[wix-devs] Help! Destabilized Repo

If you somehow munged your develop branch on your fork, that implies you did some commits to develop.  If you create and push a new branch based off of develop, then you should be safe to go back to your develop branch, and do a hard rest prior to any of your changes.  From there you should be able to pull upstream changes and merge them in, getting back to a happy state.

you could probably use "git format-patch" to export your changes and then reapply them when a repo is fixed.

Today, I managed to destabilize my repo, specifically my develop branch.
The only way I know that I can fix
it for sure would be to do a new fork, but that would destroy my
Issue5371 branch, which is waiting on a
pull request.

I was wondering if you could create an Issue5371 branch of
github.com/wixtoolset/wix4<http://github.com/wixtoolset/wix4> and pull my changes on this branch from github.com/cpuwzd/wix4<http://github.com/cpuwzd/wix4> before I lose all my work again.

That should allow me to reconstruct everything at my end while we discuss my changes..
