NAME

       guilt - quilt on top of git

SYNOPSIS

       guilt COMMAND [ARGS]

DESCRIPTION

       Andrew Morton originally developed a set of scripts for maintaining
       kernel patches outside of any SCM tool. Others extended these into a
       suite called quilt. The basic idea behind quilt is to maintain patches
       instead of maintaining source files. Patches can be added, removed or
       reordered, and they can be refreshed as you fix bugs or update to a new
       base revision. quilt is very powerful, but it is not integrated with
       the underlying SCM tools. This makes it difficult to visualize your
       changes.

       Guilt allows one to use quilt functionality on top of a Git repository.
       Changes are maintained as patches which are committed into Git. Commits
       can be removed or reordered, and the underlying patch can be refreshed
       based on changes made in the working directory. The patch directory can
       also be placed under revision control, so you can have a separate
       history of changes made to your patches.

PATCHES DIRECTORY

       In Guilt, all the patches are stored in .git/patches/$branch/, where
       $branch is the name of the branch being worked on. This means that one
       can have a independent series of patches for each branch present in the
       repository. Each of these per-branch directories contains 3 special
       files:

       guards: This file contains any guards that should be applied to the
       series when pushing. It is only present when guards are selected.

       series: This file contains a list of all the patch filenames relative
       to the per-branch patch directory. Empty and commented out lines are
       ignored.

       status: This file contains the state of the stack. What patches are
       applied.

HOOKS

       Any guilt operation may execute zero or more hook scripts which can be
       used to run any housekeeping commands or even abort the execution of
       the command.

HOOKS DIRECTORY

       Guilt follows the same basic design of hooks in Git itself. All Guilt
       hooks are executable files (generally shell scripts, but they can be
       anything the operating system can execute) in .git/hooks/guilt/.

       The following hooks are supported:

       delete <patch name>
           Executed when a patch is deleted from the patch series via
           linkguilt:guilt-delete[1].
