NAME         top

       stg-new - Create a new, empty patch

SYNOPSIS         top

       stg new [options] [--] [<name>]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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

       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 editor.

OPTIONS         top

           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.)

       --save-template FILE
           Instead of running the command, just write the message
           template to FILE, and exit. (If FILE is "-", write to

           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

           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.
