STG-SINK(1) StGit Manual STG-SINK(1)
stg-sink - Send patches deeper down the stack
stg sink [-t <target patch>] [-n] [--] [<patches>]
This is the opposite operation of stg-float(1): move the specified patches down the stack. It is for example useful to group stable patches near the bottom of the stack, where they are less likely to be impacted by the push of another patch, and from where they can be more easily committed or pushed. If no patch is specified on command-line, the current patch gets sunk. By default patches are sunk to the bottom of the stack, but the --to option allows one to place them under any applied patch. Sinking internally involves popping all patches (or all patches including <target patch>), then pushing the patches to sink, and then (unless --nopush is also given) pushing back into place the formerly-applied patches.
-n, --nopush Do not push back on the stack the formerly-applied patches. Only the patches to sink are pushed. -t TARGET, --to TARGET Specify a target patch to place the patches below, instead of sinking them to the bottom of the stack. -k, --keep Keep the local changes.
