PROGRAM:

NAME


git-debcherry - export commits touching upstream source as patches

SYNOPSIS


git-debcherry [options] upstream [integration]

DESCRIPTION


This program will analyze git history and try to create a set of patches meeting the
following conditions:

1. Is guaranteed to apply to upstream

2. Produces the same work tree as integration, outside ./debian

3. Does not touch ./debian

4. As much as possible, matches the git history from upstream to integration

BRANCH PARAMETERS


upstream

This ref should be suitable for export as a .orig.tar.gz. In particular note that
quilt has no way of deleting files that does not include the material to be deleted
in the patch, so your upstream branch should include any necessary file deletions.

integration

This branch contains all debian packaging, plus any changes introduced to upstream
source by the debian packager. This argument is optional. If integration is not
passed git-debcherry will use HEAD.

OPTIONS


The following options are available:

-o, --output-directory directory

Place output (patches and series file) in directory. If unspecified, output
patches (in mbox format) to stdout.

-s, --stat

Only output diffstat of patches

-d, --debug
Output some debugging information. Probably only useful to developers or those
reporting bugs.

EXAMPLE


To export the patches between tag v3.0+dfsg1 and the current branch into ./debian/patches:

$ git-debcherry -o debian/patches v3.0+dfsg1

NOTES


PERFORMANCE
git-debcherry currently uses git-filter-branch(1) to rewrite all commits on the
integration branch not present upstream. Depending on the number of such commits, this can
be noticeably slow.

DELETED FILES
git-debcherry currently follows dpkg-source(1) in ignoring file deletions. This has the
positive side effect of not bloating the patches, but if you really need the files deleted
for the build and/or licensing reasons, you should delete them in upstream.
