stg-edit - Edit a patch
stg edit [OPTIONS] [patch]
Edit a patch. Various aspects of a patch may be edited, including the message, author, patch name, or even the patch’s diff. By default, the topmost patch is edited. With no options or when --edit is specified, the patch details are edited interactively. Alternatively, command line options may be used to modify the patch non-interactively. The --diff option causes the patch’s diff to be appended to the patch description when editing interactively. This diff may be edited interactively (or just used as a reference when editing the patch’s message). The StGit attempts to apply the modified diff to the patch’s parent tree. If the updated diff does not apply, no changes are made to the patch and the edited patch is saved to a file which may be corrected and then fed-back into stg edit --file.
-e, --edit Invoke editor for patch description -d, --diff Show diff when editing patch description -m <message>, --message=<message> Use message instead of invoking the editor -f <path>, --file=<path> Use the contents of file instead of invoking the editor. Use "-" to read from stdin. --no-verify Disable commit-msg hook -s[=<value>], --signoff[=<value>] Add "Signed-off-by" message trailer. The value is optional and defaults to the committer name and email. This option may be provided multiple times. --ack[=<value>] Add "Acked-by" message trailer. The value is optional and defaults to the committer’s name and email. This option may be provided multiple times. --review[=<value>] Add "Reviewed-by" message trailer. The value is optional and defaults to the committer’s name and email. This option may be provided multiple times. --author=<name-and-email> Set the author "name <email>" --authname=<name> Set the author name --authemail=<email> Set the author email --authdate=<date> Set the date the patch was authored. Use "now" to use the current time and date. --committer-date-is-author-date Instead of using the current time as the committer date, use the author date of the commit as the committer date. --save-template=<file> Instead of running the command, just write the patch description to FILE, and exit. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.) When driving StGit from another program, it may be useful to first call a command with --save-template, then let the user edit the message, and then call the same command with --file. -t <treeish>, --set-tree=<treeish> Set the patch’s git tree to the specified treeish without changing the tree of any other patches. When used on the top patch, the index and work tree will be updated to match the new tree. This low-level option is primarily meant to be used by tools built on top of StGit, such as the Emacs mode. See also the --set-tree flag of stg-push(1).
