stg-pick - Man Page

Import a patch from a different branch or a commit object


stg pick [options] [--] ([<patch1>] [<patch2>] [<patch3>..<patch4>])|<commit>


Import one or more patches from a different branch or a commit object into the current series. By default, the name of the imported patch is used as the name of the current patch. It can be overridden with the --name option. A commit object can be reverted with the --revert option. The log and author information are those of the commit object.

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 supplied as the --pretty option to 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.


-n NAME, --name NAME

Use NAME as the patch name.

-B REF-BRANCH, --ref-branch REF-BRANCH

Pick patches from BRANCH.

-r,  --revert

Use COMMITID as parent.

-x,  --expose

Append the imported commit id to the patch log.


Fold the commit object into the current patch.


Like fold but only update the current patch files.

-f FILE, --file FILE

Only fold the given file (can be used multiple times).


Keep the patch unapplied.
