Abort a commit (local changes are not lost)

Reset local repository and apply newest version from remote repository

Show all branches (local and remote)

Delete local branch (remote branch will not be affected)

Apply changes from develop branch to feature branch (Git flow)

Apply one commit from develop branch to feature branch without conflicts
