I've got two branches that are fully merged together.

However, after the merge is done, I realise that one file has been messed up by the merge (someone else did an auto-format, gah), and it would just be easier to change to the new version in the other branch, and then re-insert my one line change after bringing it over into my branch.

So what's the easiest way in git to do this?

Let’s resolve the issue with an example

git tag -a v1.2 9fceb02 -m"Message here"

Where 9fceb02 is the beginning part of the commit id. You can then push the tag using 

git push origin v1.2

You can do a git log to show all the commit IDs in your current branch.

Warning: This creates tags with the current date
