Last time I looked, it wasn't a good idea to mix the instructions of
those documents. Stick to one or another, but not both.

Definitely, those files were added with `bzr add'. You did it
inadvertently. The guides you use have very explicit steps for
describing their respective workflows. Knowing what you exectly did (if
you remember) would be useful, just to consider rewriting the parts that
could be the cause of the confusion.

I'm not sure I understand your question. With bzr, you do `bzr uncommit
--revision N'. DON'T EVER DO THAT ON A PUBLIC BRANCH unless you want to
screw other's local mirrors. If you are not completely sure that you are
working on a local branch, don't use `uncommit'. Fortunately, there is a
setting on the FSF bzr repo that will not allow you to uncommit
something from it, but just in case that setting's implementation has
bugs, don't try it.

You commit the reverse patch.
