I do 

     git push kde:kmymoney 4.7

w/o the ssh stuff you do up-front, but that part might differ for you 
depending your local setup.

If you want to verify that the last commit (your cherry-pick) did the right 
thing, you could always see the last commit on the current branch using the 
following command:

     git diff HEAD^..

which is actually

     git diff HEAD^..HEAD

but one could ommit the final HEAD.

By now, you should have them all:

 - git checkout 4.7
 - <do what ever is necessary to add your changes (commit/cherry-pick)>
 - <which includes your testing>
 - git push kde:kmymoney 4.7

and don't forget to switch back to master ;)
