       git-quiltimport - Applies a quilt patchset onto the current branch

       git quiltimport [--dry-run | -n] [--author <author>] [--patches <dir>]
		       [--series <file>] [--keep-non-patch]

       Applies a quilt patchset onto the current Git branch, preserving the
       patch boundaries, patch order, and patch descriptions present in the
       quilt patchset.

       For each patch the code attempts to extract the author from the patch
       description. If that fails it falls back to the author specified with
       --author. If the --author flag was not given the patch description is
       displayed and the user is asked to interactively enter the author of
       the patch.

       If a subject is not found in the patch description the patch name is
       preserved as the 1 line subject in the Git description.

       -n, --dry-run
	   Walk through the patches in the series and warn if we cannot find
	   all of the necessary information to commit a patch. At the time of
	   this writing only missing author information is warned about.

       --author Author Name <Author Email>
	   The author name and email address to use when no author information
	   can be found in the patch description.

       --patches <dir>
	   The directory to find the quilt patches.

	   The default for the patch directory is patches or the value of the
	   $QUILT_PATCHES environment variable.

       --series <file>
	   The quilt series file.

	   The default for the series file is <patches>/series or the value of
	   the $QUILT_SERIES environment variable.

	   Pass -b flag to git mailinfo (see git-mailinfo(1)).
