GIT-CHERRY-PICK(1)                          Git Manual                         GIT-CHERRY-PICK(1)

NAME
       git-cherry-pick - Apply the changes introduced by some existing commits

SYNOPSIS
       git cherry-pick [--edit] [-n] [-m parent-number] [-s] [-x] [--ff]
                         [-S[]] ...
       git cherry-pick --continue
       git cherry-pick --quit
       git cherry-pick --abort

DESCRIPTION
       Given one or more existing commits, apply the change each one introduces, recording a new
       commit for each. This requires your working tree to be clean (no modifications from the
       HEAD commit).

       When it is not obvious how to apply a change, the following happens:

        1. The current branch and HEAD pointer stay at the last commit successfully made.

        2. The CHERRY_PICK_HEAD ref is set to point at the commit that introduced the change that
           is difficult to apply.

        3. Paths in which the change applied cleanly are updated both in the index file and in
           your working tree.

        4. For conflicting paths, the index file records up to three versions, as described in
           the "TRUE MERGE" section of git-merge(1). The working tree files will include a
           description of the conflict bracketed by the usual conflict markers <<<<<<< and
           >>>>>>>.

        5. No other modifications are made.

       See git-merge(1) for some hints on resolving such conflicts.

OPTIONS
       ...
           Commits to cherry-pick. For a more complete list of ways to spell commits, see
           gitrevisions(7). Sets of commits can be passed but no traversal is done by default, as
           if the --no-walk option was specified, see git-rev-list(1). Note that specifying a
           range will feed all ... arguments to a single revision walk (see a later
           example that uses maint master..next).

       -e, --edit
           With this option, git cherry-pick will let you edit the commit message prior to
           committing.

       -x
           When recording the commit, append a line that says "(cherry picked from commit ...)"
           to the original commit message in order to indicate which commit this change was
           cherry-picked from. This is done only for cherry picks without conflicts. Do not use
           this option if you are cherry-picking from your private branch because the information
           is useless to the recipient. If on the other hand you are cherry-picking between two
           publicly visible branches (e.g. backporting a fix to a maintenance branch for an older
           release from a development branch), adding this information can be useful.

       -r
           It used to be that the command defaulted to do -x described above, and -r was to
           disable it. Now the default is not to do -x so this option is a no-op.

       -m parent-number, --mainline parent-number
           Usually you cannot cherry-pick a merge because you do not know which side of the merge
           should be considered the mainline. This option specifies the parent number (starting
           from 1) of the mainline and allows cherry-pick to replay the change relative to the
           specified parent.

       -n, --no-commit
           Usually the command automatically creates a sequence of commits. This flag applies the
           changes necessary to cherry-pick each named commit to your working tree and the index,
           without making any commit. In addition, when this option is used, your index does not
           have to match the HEAD commit. The cherry-pick is done against the beginning state of
           your index.

           This is useful when cherry-picking more than one commits' effect to your index in a
           row.

       -s, --signoff
           Add Signed-off-by line at the end of the commit message. See the signoff option in
           git-commit(1) for more information.

       -S[], --gpg-sign[=]
           GPG-sign commits. The keyid argument is optional and defaults to the committer
           identity; if specified, it must be stuck to the option without a space.

       --ff
           If the current HEAD is the same as the parent of the cherry-pickā€™ed commit, then a
           fast forward to this commit will be performed.

       --allow-empty
           By default, cherry-picking an empty commit will fail, indicating that an explicit
           invocation of git commit --allow-empty is required. This option overrides that
           behavior, allowing empty commits to be preserved automatically in a cherry-pick. Note
           that when "--ff" is in effect, empty commits that meet the "fast-forward" requirement
           will be kept even without this option. Note also, that use of this option only keeps
           commits that were initially empty (i.e. the commit recorded the same tree as its
           parent). Commits which are made empty due to a previous commit are dropped. To force
           the inclusion of those commits use --keep-redundant-commits.

       --allow-empty-message
           By default, cherry-picking a commit with an empty message will fail. This option
           overrides that behaviour, allowing commits with empty messages to be cherry picked.

       --keep-redundant-commits
           If a commit being cherry picked duplicates a commit already in the current history, it
           will become empty. By default these redundant commits cause cherry-pick to stop so the
           user can examine the commit. This option overrides that behavior and creates an empty
           commit object. Implies --allow-empty.

       --strategy=
           Use the given merge strategy. Should only be used once. See the MERGE STRATEGIES
           section in git-merge(1) for details.
