Exactly, so they are related after all. However, --allow-empty says this: "By default, cherry-picking an empty commit will fail," Should we change that too if we introduce --skip-empty? I don't think so. I think it makes more sense to have a new --empty-commits=[keep|skip|fail] option, so we don't have to document how each option affects the other, and what is the default. Or rather; the option documents that. In fact, it might make sense to change the default in v2.0 to --empty-commits=skip. If it makes sense in 'git rebase', why doesn't it in 'git cherry-pick'? -- Felipe Contreras -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
