GIT-QUILTIMPORT(1)		  Git Manual		    GIT-QUILTIMPORT(1)

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

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

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.
