Reverting a pull request on GitHub creates a new pull request that contains one revert of the merge commit from the original merged pull request. To revert pull requests, you must have write permissions in the repository.
Note: You may need to revert the individual commits in your pull request if either of the following is true.
- Reverting the pull request causes merge conflicts
- The original pull request was not originally merged on GitHub. For example, someone could have merged the pull request using a fast-forward merge on the command line.
For more information about using Git to manually revert individual commits, see Git revert in the Git documentation.
Under your repository name, click Pull requests.
In the "Pull Requests" list, click the pull request you'd like to revert.
Near the bottom of the pull request, click Revert. If the Revert option isn't displayed, you'll need to ask the repository administrator for write permissions.
Merge the resulting pull request. For more information, see "Merging a pull request."
