I worked on the master branch and tried this git rebase -i HEAD~3. I actually tried to delete a commit from commit history but realized there was no need for that.
After the nano editor opened I made no changes to the file and closed it without saving. However, a message was displayed in the command line stating: "Successfully rebased and updated refs/heads/master ". What does that mean? I didn´t (as far as I know) do any changes. When I looked at git log and git status I saw no changes.
Afterwards, I made a couple of commits and pushed them to the remote.
My question is: Why was the message displayed? Did anything actually change?
I am asking this because this is actually a shared project and I was about to do a major mistake with rebasing something and now I am worried that I might´ve done so. As you can probably tell I am quite a n00b with git :)
Thank you for your help!
