I can tell you that one of the files installed by git is called 'git-cherry-pick'. I've never used it, so I can't tell you what it does, but the subject has been discussed on the git mailing list.

I dream of a future where I can maintain my own repository
(dfly/freebsd/whatever), apply my own patches and sherry pick other
3rd party patches from a number of unrelated repositories. :)

It sounds like bitkeeper and git are made-to-order for your wishes. Licensing is the major difference between the two ;o)

If this is important to you, you should read the git mailing list
on gmane.org.  Subscribe to gmane.comp.version-control.git
This will give you many months of history during git's design,
and should give you a good idea of what git can do.


A complementary collection of shellscripts called 'cogito'
make git easier to use for us newbies.  It also includes a
tk-based GUI which makes it easy to study the commit history
of a source tree:


If any of our DragonFly developers have ever cursed CVS --
please take a look at git.  It was designed by developers
who cursed CVS every day ;o)
