Discussion on: Is git commit --amend truly *important*?

Got it, that's an interesting scenario. Especially when A-B testing is done in production.

I guess that problem with reverting a throwaway feature commit could be prevented by maintaining two feature branches for each tested feature, and build them so they maybe run in separate production environments. And a load balancer or some other kind of front end would decide where a user ends up (test A or B)

That would make sure that those distinct features don't have to be added to the same mainline dev branch, and in the end you can simply abandon one branch and merge in the other
