I agree.  I liked your earlier suggestion of adding something like
"(applying 1d3fb08, 2/5)".  Where "applying" should be "cherry picking"
or "reverting" when appropriate.

I actually think this should be the only change to the default status
output, additional information on the full list of commits being applied
should either come from "git rebase --status" or some new flag to "git
status" which is off by default.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
