Did you actually *read* my answers?

To revert a change you've committed:
* do not update to that revision!
* show the log for your working copy
* find the revision where you committed that change
* select that revision in the log dialog
* right-click on that revision
* in the context menu, choose "revert changes from this revision"
* commit

Now go back to my last mails. Do you see that I've already told you
exactly that?
If you have problems understanding my explanations, please tell me. But
don't just ignore my answers and ask the same questions again. Tell us
what you don't understand in the docs or our answers. Just ignoring our
answers as if we didn't tell you is simply rude.
