       maildir-import-patch - import a git patch series into a maildir


       maildir-import-patch MAILDIR [git-format-patch(1) args]


       maildir-import-patch generates a patch series using git-format-patch(1), and then imports
       the series into a maildir as an e-mail thread, one message per patch.

       This is useful for providing inline feedback on a branch by e-mail, when the submitter did
       not use git-send-email(1).


       Suppose that Bob uses git-request-pull(1) to ask you to review and merge his branch
       'feature'.  You add Bob's repository as a remote called 'bob', check out the bob/feature
       branch locally, look at the commits and run some tests.  Now you'd like to provide inline
       feedback on Bob's changes, indicating which parts you think are ready to merge and which
       parts need more work.  So you type

           % maildir-import-patch ~/Maildir/patches master..bob/feature

       Over in your MUA, you can then reply to each e-mail in the new thread generated by
       maildir-import-patch, providing line-by-line feedback on Bob's work.
