       git-quiltimport - Applies a quilt patchset onto the current branch


       git quiltimport [--dry-run | -n] [--author <author>] [--patches <dir>]
                       [--series <file>] [--keep-non-patch]


       Applies a quilt patchset onto the current Git branch, preserving the patch boundaries,
       patch order, and patch descriptions present in the quilt patchset.

       For each patch the code attempts to extract the author from the patch description. If that
       fails it falls back to the author specified with --author. If the --author flag was not
       given the patch description is displayed and the user is asked to interactively enter the
       author of the patch.

       If a subject is not found in the patch description the patch name is preserved as the 1
       line subject in the Git description.


       -n, --dry-run
           Walk through the patches in the series and warn if we cannot find all of the necessary
           information to commit a patch. At the time of this writing only missing author
           information is warned about.

       --author Author Name <Author Email>
           The author name and email address to use when no author information can be found in
           the patch description.

       --patches <dir>
           The directory to find the quilt patches.

           The default for the patch directory is patches or the value of the $QUILT_PATCHES
           environment variable.

       --series <file>
           The quilt series file.

           The default for the series file is <patches>/series or the value of the $QUILT_SERIES
           environment variable.

           Pass -b flag to git mailinfo (see git-mailinfo(1)).
