Subject: [git-users] Cherry picking fails for obscure reasons
The two branches to merge are in "master" and "src/master". Then, I
$ git checkout --orphan new-master
$ git cherry-pick 9d325d6d 3f4c52ba
error: a cherry-pick or revert is already in progress
hint: try "git cherry-pick (--continue | --quit | --abort)"
fatal: cherry-pick failed
$ git cherry-pick 9d325d6d && git cherry-pick 3f4c52ba

So, why does the first cherry pick command fail, but the split
command works? I use git 1.9.1.
How are the two commits related? Do they form a commit range?
Yes, they are consecutive commits in one of the branches. But I don't see why
they must. It should work in any case.
The command doesn't take a list of commits, rather you need to look at the
gitrevisions guide and git-rev-list as decribed on the git cherry-pick man
The gitrevisions guide suggests that giving "A B" means to, well, apply A and
B. I cannot see any text saying that a list of commits is forbidden. Besides,
git's error message is opaque to me.
if you look in the Specifying Ranges section, you'll see that the 'list' is a
way of specifiying a range by including and excluding your various commits in
That said, I haven't looked at the part wher you get the "error: a cherry-pick
or revert is already in progress" to see why that is.
