You won't find such things in the issue tracker, because they are
mentioned in the docs.

You will feel really embarrassed: have you seen the context menu entry
"check for modifications"? Try it! You will get a nice dialog which will
show you all modifications you made to your working copy. And it has a
nice little button at the bottom which reads "check repository". Once
you click on that, you will see which files have changed in the
repository but not in your working copy.

It's called "revert". You will also find that one in the context menu.

I thought people working at a university should be trained in reading
docs? At least I wouldn't have made it without it...
