+NAME
+----
+git-revert - Revert an existing commit.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-revert' [-n] <commit>
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Given one existing commit, revert the change the patch introduces, and record a
+new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
+modifications from the HEAD commit).
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<commit>::
+ Commit to revert.
+
+-n::
+ Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
+ a commit log message stating which commit was reverted.
+ This flag applies the change necessary to revert the
+ named commit to your working tree, but does not make the
+ commit. In addition, when this option is used, your
+ working tree does not have to match the HEAD commit.
+ The revert is done against the beginning state of your
+ working tree.
+
+ This is useful when reverting more than one commits'
+ effect to your working tree in a row.
