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

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

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

       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

       --patches <dir>
           The directory to find the quilt patches and the quilt series file.

           The default for the patch directory is patches or the value of the $QUILT_PATCHES environment
