git‐quiltimport − Applies a quilt patchset onto the current
branch



git quiltimport [−−dry−run | −n] [−−author <author>] [−−patches <dir>]
                [−−series <file>] [−−keep−non−patch]




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.



     −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.

     −−keep−non−patch
     Pass −b flag to git mailinfo (see git‐mailinfo(1)).
