Chiming in late in agreement, FWIW:

Let 'revert' be!

'Resolve' has many good alternatives; I like 'resolved',
'settled', and 'merge-done', which have already been

More suggestions:
- 'free' (as in, free up the file so I can proceed)
- 'proceed'
- 'continue'

I could even live with leaving it as 'resolve', as
unintuitive as it may be (I've never confused them).

But changing 'revert' would definitely be a step backward.
