Create a new, empty patch on the current stack. The new patch is
created on top of the currently applied patches, and is made the new
top of the stack. Uncommitted changes in the work tree are not
included in the patch — that is handled by stg-refresh(1).
The given name must be unique in the stack, and may only contain
alphanumeric characters, dashes and underscores. If no name is given,
one is generated from the first line of the patch’s commit message.
An editor will be launched to edit the commit message to be used for
the patch, unless the --message flag already specified one. The
patchdescr.tmpl template file (if available) is used to pre-fill the
--author "NAME <EMAIL>"
Set the author details.
Set the author name.
Set the author email.
Set the author date.
-m MESSAGE, --message MESSAGE
Use MESSAGE instead of invoking the editor.
-f FILE, --file FILE
Use the contents of FILE instead of invoking the editor. (If FILE
is "-", write to stdout.)
Instead of running the command, just write the message template
to FILE, and exit. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.)
When driving StGit from another program, it is often useful to
first call a command with --save-template, then let the user edit
the message, and then call the same command with --file.
Add a "Signed-off-by:" to the end of the patch.
Add an "Acked-by:" line to the end of the patch.
Add a "Reviewed-by:" line to the end of the patch.
This option bypasses the commit-msg hook.
