Initialize SOURCE_GIT as a source-git repo...

Synopsis

packit source-git init [Options] UPSTREAM_REF SOURCE_GIT DIST_GIT

Description

Initialize SOURCE_GIT as a source-git repo by applying downstream patches from DIST_GIT as Git commits on top of UPSTREAM_REF.

SOURCE_GIT needs to be an existing clone of the upstream repository.

UPSTREAM_REF is a tag, branch or commit from SOURCE_GIT.

SOURCE_GIT and DIST_GIT are paths to the source-git and dist-git repos. Branch names can be specified, separated by colons.

If a branch name is specified for SOURCE_GIT, the branch is checked out and reset to UPSTREAM_REF.

If a branch name is specified for DIST_GIT, the branch is checked out before setting up the source-git repo. This branch is expected to exist.
