git-quiltimport

Applies a quilt patchset onto the current branch

SYNOPSIS



gitquiltimport [ --dry -run | -n] [ --author <author>] [ --patches <dir>] [ --series <file>] [ --keep -non -patch]

DESCRIPTION


Applies a quilt patchset onto the current Git branch, preserving the patch boundaries, patch order, and patch descriptions present in the quilt patchset .
For each patch the code attempts to extract the author from the patch description . If that fails it falls back to the author specified with --author . If the --author flag was not given the patch description is displayed and the user is asked to interactively enter the author of the patch .
If a subject is not found in the patch description the patch name is preserved as the 1 line subject in the Git description .

OPTIONS

-n, --dry -run Walk through the patches in the series and warn if we cannot find all of the necessary information to commit a patch . At the time of this writing only missing author information is warned about .

--author Author Name <Author Email> The author name and email address to use when no author information can be found in the patch description .

--patches <dir> The directory to find the quilt patches .


The default for the patch directory is patches or the value of the $QUILT_PATCHES environment variable .

--series <file> The quilt series file .
The default for the series file is <patches>/series or the value of the $QUILT_SERIES environment variable .
