gbp-pq - Manage quilt patches on patch queue branches in git
gbp-pq export | import | rebase | drop
gbp-pq helps to manage quilt patches in Debian packages that are
maintained with git-buildpackage. This is especially useful with
packages using the 3.0 (quilt) source format. With gbp-pq you can
maintain the quilt patches that should be applied to a package on a
separate branch called patch-queue branch. So if your Debian package
lifes on master the associated patch-queue branch will be called patch-
for example workflows.
import Create a patch queue branch from quilt patches in
debian/patches/ that are listed in debian/patches/series.
export Export the patches on the patch-queue branch associated to the
current branch into a quilt patch series in debian/patches/ and
update the series file.
rebase Switch to the patch-queue branch associated to the current
branch and rebase it against the current branch.
drop Drop (delete) the patch queue associated to the current branch.
So if you're on branch foo this would drop branch patch-
git-buildpackage(1), dpkg-source(1), quilt(1),
