STG-PICK(1)                   StGit Manual                   STG-PICK(1)

NAME         top

       stg-pick - Import a patch from a different branch or a commit

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

OPTIONS         top

       -n NAME, --name NAME
           Use NAME as the patch name.

       -p COMMITID, --parent COMMITID
           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.
