recently I discovered that cherry pick mostly fails with a strange error message on Indigo SR1 (with the latest Egit release), at least on my installations. Granted that I don’t use it much, I was sure that it was working in the time of Helios.
The error I am getting is simply:
Cherry pick failed
[some file in the commit to be cherry picked] File is modified
The strange thing is that that file (or any other file in that commit rather) has not been modified before in any other commits since the split in the parent branch.
As an isolated commit I fully expect the cherry pick to go through without issue, instead of some unhelpful error being shown.
Just want to find out if others have experienced similar issues, or ways to obtain more detailed error logging..
I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
