       stg-import - Import a GNU diff file as a new patch


       stg import [options] [--] [<file>|<url>]


       Create a new patch and apply the given GNU diff file (or the standard input). By default,
       the file name is used as the patch name but this can be overridden with the --name option.
       The patch can either be a normal file with the description at the top or it can have
       standard mail format, the Subject, From and Date headers being used for generating the
       patch information. The command can also read series and mbox files.

       If a patch does not apply cleanly, the failed diff is written to the .stgit-failed.patch
       file and an empty StGIT patch is added to the stack.

       The patch description has to be separated from the data with a --- line.


       -m, --mail
           Import the patch from a standard e-mail file.

       -M, --mbox
           Import a series of patches from an mbox file.

       -s, --series
           Import a series of patches from a series file or a tar archive.

       -u, --url
           Import a patch from a URL.

       -n NAME, --name NAME
           Use NAME as the patch name.

       -p N, --strip N
           Remove N leading slashes from diff paths (default 1).

       -t, --stripname
           Strip numbering and extension from patch name.

       -i, --ignore
           Ignore the applied patches in the series.

           Replace the unapplied patches in the series.

       -b BASE, --base BASE
           Use BASE instead of HEAD for file importing.

           Leave the rejected hunks in corresponding *.rej files.

       -e, --edit
           Invoke an editor for the patch description.

       -d, --showdiff
           Show the patch content in the editor buffer.

       -a "NAME <EMAIL>", --author "NAME <EMAIL>"
           Use "NAME <EMAIL>" as the author details.

       --authname AUTHNAME
           Use AUTHNAME as the author name.

       --authemail AUTHEMAIL
           Use AUTHEMAIL as the author e-mail.

       --authdate AUTHDATE
           Use AUTHDATE as the author date.

           Add a "Signed-off-by:" to the end of the patch.

           Add an "Acked-by:" line to the end of the patch.
