       cdbs-edit-patch - create or edit a CDBS patch


       cdbs-edit-patch patchname


       cdbs-edit-patch  creates  or  edits patches for use by the CDBS simple- patch system.  For more information about CDBS  please  see
       the documentation under /usr/share/doc/cdbs/.

       When  patchname exists, cdbs-edit-patch will set up a temporary working
       source tree, apply  all  patches  up  to  and  including  patchname  in
       lexicographic  order, and spawn an interactive shell for the developer.
       The developer can then edit files  in  this  working  tree.   When  the
       developer   is  done  and  exits  the  shell,  cdbs-edit-patch  updates
       patchname to reflect the changes made.  To abort the process  from  the
       interactive shell, exit with a nonzero exit value.

       When  patchname  does not exist, cdbs-edit-patch will assume that a new
       patch should be created.  As with the above  scenario,  cdbs-edit-patch
       will first create a temporary working source tree and apply all patches
       up to the new patch in lexicographic order.  When the  shell  is  quit,
       cdbs-edit-patch will create patchname.
