git cherry-pick -x default

In the man page for git cherry-pick:


    When recording the commit, append a line that says "(cherry picked
    from commit …)" to the original commit message in order to indicate
    which commit this change was cherry-picked from. ...

    It used to be that the command defaulted to do -x described above,
    and -r was to disable it. Now the default is not to do -x so this
    option is a no-op.


Is there a config setting to locally set the default back to -x, and allow -r to disable it? I couldn’t find one, but I may have missed it.

    Short of making an alias for git cherry-pick -x, no, this is not possible.

    (Fun fact: The default was changed in commit abd6970.)
