16 DESCRIPTION
17 -----------
18 Applies a quilt patchset onto the current Git branch, preserving
19 the patch boundaries, patch order, and patch descriptions present
20 in the quilt patchset.
21
22 For each patch the code attempts to extract the author from the
23 patch description. If that fails it falls back to the author
24 specified with --author. If the --author flag was not given
25 the patch description is displayed and the user is asked to
26 interactively enter the author of the patch.
27
28 If a subject is not found in the patch description the patch name is
29 preserved as the 1 line subject in the Git description.
