Subject: [PATCH v2] Introduce CHERRY_PICK_HEAD
Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2011 12:20:35 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1297876835-70613-1-git-send-email-jaysoffian@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1297850903-65038-2-git-send-email-jaysoffian@gmail.com>

When a cherry-pick conflicts git advises to use:

 $ git commit -c <original commit id>

to preserve the original commit message and authorship. Instead, let's
record the original commit id in CHERRY_PICK_HEAD and advise to use:

  $ git commit -c CHERRY_PICK_HEAD

In the next commit, we teach git to handle the '-c CHERRY_PICK_HEAD'
part. Note that we record CHERRY_PICK_HEAD even in the case where there
are no conflicts so that we may use it to communicate authorship to
commit; this will then allow us to remove set_author_ident_env from
revert.c.

Compared to the original patch, this removes CHERRY_PICK_HEAD when
a conflict occurs during an interactive rebase. Also corrected a minor
typo in the commit message. There were no changes to the next patch
in the series, so I didn't resend it.

 introduces, recording a new commit for each.  This requires your
 working tree to be clean (no modifications from the HEAD commit).
 
+When it is not obvious how to apply a change, the following
+happens:
+
+1. The current branch and `HEAD` pointer stay at the last commit
+   successfully made.
+2. The `CHERRY_PICK_HEAD` ref is set to point at the commit that
+   introduced the change that is difficult to apply.
+3. Paths in which the change applied cleanly are updated both
+   in the index file and in your working tree.
+4. For conflicting paths, the index file records up to three
+   versions, as described in the "TRUE MERGE" section of
+   linkgit:git-merge[1].  The working tree files will include
+   a description of the conflict bracketed by the usual
+   conflict markers `<<<<<<<` and `>>>>>>>`.
+5. No other modifications are made.
+
+See linkgit:git-merge[1] for some hints on resolving such
+conflicts.
