[wix-devs] Help! Destabilized Repo

The problem started when I tried to pull from upstream and wound up 
merging issue5371 into develop. At that point,
I could no longer check out develop. Things just got worse from there.

If I read the documentation correctly, I should be able to use git diff  
issue55371 > change.patch and git apply
change.patch (with appropriate paths) to save and restore my changes, 
respectively. There shouldn't be any
binary file changes.

How does that sound?

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.
