As it is obvious, and as it is somehow addressed in the below part of this section, I don't think it is worth talking about git commit or git merge or git cherry-pick or any other command. > In particular we need to have covered the alternate to a graft of "A B > C" (i.e. A is now a merge of B & C) if we are to deprecate grafts with > any conviction. (https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/GraftPoint) Adding such an example in a new EXAMPLE section would address this better. If people agree I will do it in a following patch. >> among other git commands, can be used to create >> +replacement objects from existing objects. >> + >> +If you want to replace many blobs, trees or commits that are part of >> a >> +string of commits, you may just want to create a replacement string >> of >> +commits and then only replace the commit at the tip of the target >> +string of commits with the commit at the tip of the replacement >> string >> +of commits.
