  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

First of all, I do not have much experience with git specific and I had worked with it previously like with ordinary SVN (one repo, possibly with branches, and simple commits.)

I forked a repo on GitHub, made some changes and committed into my forked repo. All went fine and I see the changes. Now I need to "cherry-pick" some commits from the forked repo to a "parent" repo, but I have no idea how can I do that? By the way, I have full (read+write) access to "parent" repo.

I'm using SmartGit 2 as GUI, if it's important.

P.S. I know it's possible to use 'Pull Request' feature, but it would look silly if I will make a bunch of pull requests only for immediate committing them by myself.
