NAME

       notmuch-extract-patch - extract a git patch series from notmuch

SYNOPSIS

       notmuch-extract-patch QUERY

DESCRIPTION

       notmuch-extract-patch extracts a series of git patches from your notmuch database.  It is
       designed to extract patches that were originally sent using git-send-email(1).  It skips
       cover letters and replies/reviews.

OPTIONS

       None.

EXAMPLE

           % git checkout -b test-feature
           % notmuch-extract-patch thread:000000000000265f | git am

LIMITATIONS

       notmuch-extract-patch assumes one patch series per query.  So if there is more than one
       patch series in a thread, you will need to construct a notmuch query that includes only
       the patches you want to extract, which somewhat defeats the purpose of this script.

       This should not happen often because best practices when sharing patches with
       git-send-email(1) include starting a new thread when posting a revised series.  The
       --in-reply-to option to notmuch-extract-patch is used mainly for posting a patch series in
       reply to a bug report.
