cdbs-edit-patch - create or edit a CDBS simple-patchsys.mk patch
cdbs-edit-patch creates or edits patches for use by the CDBS simple-
patchsys.mk 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.
