Export patches to a directory


stg export [OPTIONS] [patch]...


Export a range of patches to a given directory in unified diff format. All applied patches are exported by default.

Patches are exported to patches-<branch> by default. The --dir option may be used to specify a different output directory.

The patch file output may be customized via a template file found at "$GIT_DIR/patchexport.tmpl", "~/.stgit/templates/patchexport.tmpl", or "$(prefix)/share/stgit/templates". The following variables are supported in the template file:

%(description)s - patch description
%(shortdescr)s  - the first line of the patch description
%(longdescr)s   - the rest of the patch description, after the first line
%(diffstat)s    - the diff statistics
%(authname)s    - author name
%(authemail)s   - author email
%(authdate)s    - patch creation date (ISO-8601 format)
%(commname)s    - committer name
%(commemail)s   - committer email
