This post is short version of Git: Cherry-pick a commit into a branch and resolve a merge conflict. Replace `upstream/enterprise-4.8` with whatever your target branch is.
I copy/paste these commands into my terminal.
git checkout master git branch -D enterprise-4.8 git checkout --track upstream/enterprise-4.8 git status
Verify that “Your branch is up to date with ‘upstream/enterprise-4.8’.”
git cherry-pick <commit hash>
Go to the pull request that has the merge failure (e.g., like this example). Copy the commit hash. In the terminal, replace <commit hash> with the real one. Enter the command.
Ignore “CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in <path/filename>
In Atom editor (or whatever), manually resolve the merge conflict.
Save and commit the changes as “Manual CP of RHDEVDOCS-<jira#> #<pr#>”.
Confirm “Your branch is ahead of ‘upstream/enterprise-4.8’ by 1 commit.”
git push -f origin enterprise-4.8
Go to origin/enterprise-4.8 in GitHub and create the pull request with the following description.
