  I am looking for a script to merge selected checkins from one branch to 
another.  We have a script that does this in perforce,  but we want to switch 
to git ( because its free)
  I am looking in to it and the cherrypick command looks like what I am lookng 
  Developers will check in to the staging branch and we we are satisfied with 
the changes,  we want to merge those checkin to release.  We won't want to 
merge the whole branch only certain checkin ( in perforce they are changelists)

  Any ideas?
The Git way is to get the developers, on their local working branch, to locally 
rebase (polish) their work, such that the upstream reviewers (when they push 
that branch up to the public repo for review) can then take the change in a 
nice easy merge.

There are variants of how upstream recieves and integrates the branches, but 
the key learning is to get the individual dev's to do more (because they can, 
and they feel better having the approriate freedoms ;-)

The classic post is 
(have a look more at what the devs are doing at this stage)
