With this option, 'git cherry-pick' will let you edit the commit
message prior to committing.
+ This option determines how the commit message will be cleaned up before
+ being passed on to the commit machinery. See linkgit:git-commit[1] for more
+ details. In particular, if the '<mode>' is given a value of `scissors`,
+ scissors will be appended to `MERGE_MSG` before being passed on in the case
+ of a conflict.
When recording the commit, append a line that says
"(cherry picked from commit ...)" to the original commit
