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 Replace the unapplied patches in the series. -b BASE, --base BASE Use BASE instead of HEAD for file importing. --reject 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. --sign Add a "Signed-off-by:" to the end of the patch. --ack Add an "Acked-by:" line to the end of the patch.
