I would like to create a new branch with a copy of one particular commit only (from master, i.e.). How do I do that?
The closest I got to that is something like:
git checkout --orphan NEWBRANCH
git rm -rf .
git commit "MESSAGE MESSAGE MESSAGE"
git cherry-pick -x <hash>
$ git cherry-pick -x 68cc6733a14ec571c0abb0d4e77f53d93446f009
error: could not apply 68cc673... asdvasdflmdamfvla
hint: after resolving the conflicts, mark the corrected paths
hint: with 'git add <paths>' or 'git rm <paths>'
hint: and commit the result with 'git commit'
git checkout --orphan NEWBRANCH <commitid> git commit -a
git checkout --orphan <new_branch> [<start_point>]
Create a new orphan branch, named
<new_branch>, started from
<start_point>and switch to it. The first commit made on this new branch will have no parents and it will be the root of a new history totally disconnected from all the other branches and commits.
The index and the working tree are adjusted as if you had previously run "
git checkout <start_point>". This allows you to start a new history that records a set of paths similar to
<start_point>by easily running "
git commit -a" to make the root commit.
