Pádraig, thank you for sending the change. It looked good to me so it
is pushed to GNU Hello upstream.


I also update gnulib, and added an example how to use git-log-fix file.

FYI I first missed the patch attachment, so the GNU Hello git now has
an example how to revert changes in savannah git. If something like
this happen.

$ git push origin
Enter passphrase for key '/home/kerolasa/.ssh/gnu':
To address@hidden:/srv/git/hello.git
 ! [rejected]        master -> master (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to 'address@hidden:/srv/git/hello.git'
hint: Updates were rejected because the tip of your current branch is behind
hint: its remote counterpart. Integrate the remote changes (e.g.
hint: 'git pull ...') before pushing again.
hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.

the easiest way to get rid of the unintended patch seems to be

$ git revert <commit-id>
$ git push origin

Please notice that no matter how hard I tried to push with force the
savannah did not accept history overwrite. And I did not want to be
too brave, and push using --mirror option.
