NAME         top

       git-quiltimport - Applies a quilt patchset onto the current branch

SYNOPSIS         top

       git quiltimport [--dry-run | -n] [--author <author>] [--patches <dir>]
                       [--series <file>]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       -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.
