When people told me that my changes in Lisp files did not get pushed,
I did git pull again, and it told me there was a problem
lisp/ChangeLog again, but there was no conflict in it.
Then I did git commit again.

Then I did git push again, and got this.

    To address@hidden:/srv/git/emacs.git
     ! [rejected]        master -> master (non-fast-forward)
    error: failed to push some refs to 'address@hidden:/srv/git/emacs.git'
    To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected
    Merge the remote changes (e.g. 'git pull') before pushing again.  See the
    'Note about fast-forwards' section of 'git push --help' for details.

I have no idea what that means.

How can I tell?

And if those changes are stashed, why did they show up in git diff?

Anyway, I did 'git stash pop' to see if they were stashed.

That seems to have changed dozens of files.
'git diff origin/master' gave me 5000 lines.

So I tried doing 'git stash' again, and it gave me an error,

    fatal: git-write-tree: error building trees
    Cannot save the current index state

I don't have all the output.  I had run git in a shell buffer a few
times, and it causes a lot of trouble about the terminal.  So I started
running it in an ordinary terminal.

Fortunately it seems that all my changes did make it into Savannah.
So it is just a matter of how to get a clean repository.

Is there any way I can fix this other than creating a new repository?
I should not do that here; it would cost my host too much money, I

How unreliable and error-prone Git is.  I will recommend
that people choose Bzr or CVS.
