12DESCRIPTION
13-----------
14Given one existing commit, apply the change the patch introduces, and record a
15new commit that records it. This requires your working tree to be clean (no
16modifications from the HEAD commit).

18OPTIONS
19-------
20<commit>::
21 Commit to cherry-pick.
22
23-r::
f73ae1fc 24 Usually the command appends which commit was
de2b82c6
JH
25 cherry-picked after the original commit message when
26 making a commit. This option, '--replay', causes it to
27 use the original commit message intact. This is useful
28 when you are reordering the patches in your private tree
29 before publishing, and is used by 'git rebase'.
30
31-n::
32 Usually the command automatically creates a commit with
33 a commit log message stating which commit was
34 cherry-picked. This flag applies the change necessary
35 to cherry-pick the named commit to your working tree,
36 but does not make the commit. In addition, when this
37 option is used, your working tree does not have to match
38 the HEAD commit. The cherry-pick is done against the
39 beginning state of your working tree.
