git-cherry-pick - Apply the change introduced by an existing commit.
'git-cherry-pick' [-n] [-r] <commit>
Given one existing commit, apply the change the patch introduces, and record a
new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
modifications from the HEAD commit).
Commit to cherry-pick.
Usually the command appends which commit was
cherry-picked after the original commit message when
making a commit. This option, '--replay', causes it to
use the original commit message intact. This is useful
when you are reordering the patches in your private tree
before publishing, and is used by 'git rebase'.
Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
a commit log message stating which commit was
cherry-picked. This flag applies the change necessary
to cherry-pick the named commit to your working tree,
but does not make the commit. In addition, when this
option is used, your working tree does not have to match
the HEAD commit. The cherry-pick is done against the
beginning state of your working tree.
This is useful when cherry-picking more than one commits'
effect to your working tree in a row.
