Import a patch from another branch or a commit object

Synopsis

stg pick [OPTIONS] <source>...
stg pick [OPTIONS] [--name NAME] [--parent COMMITTISH] <source>
stg pick [OPTIONS] --fold [--file PATH]... <source>...
stg pick [OPTIONS] --update <source>...

Description

Import one or more patches from another branch or commit object into the current series.

By default, the imported patch’s name is reused, but may be overridden with the --name option. A commit object can be reverted with the --revert option.

When using the --expose option, the format of the commit message is determined by the stgit.pick.expose-format configuration option. This option is a format string as may be supplied to the --pretty option of git-show(1). The default is "format:%B%n(imported from commit %H)", which appends the commit hash of the picked commit to the patch’s commit message.

Options

-B <branch>, --ref-branch=<branch>

-r,  --revert

-x,  --expose

--noapply

-n <name>, --name=<name>

Use <name> for the patch name

-p <committish>, --parent=<committish>

--committer-date-is-author-date

Instead of using the current time as the committer date, use the author date of the commit as the committer date.

--fold

Fold the commit object into the current patch

--update

Like fold but only update the current patch’s files

-f <path>, --file=<path>

Only fold the given file (may be used multiple times)
