Git::CPAN::Patch

NAME

Git::CPAN::Patch - Patch CPAN modules using Git

VERSION

version 2.4.0

SYNOPSIS

# import a module:
% git-cpan clone Foo::Bar
% cd Foo-Bar
# hack and submit to RT
# it's probably best to work in a branch
% git checkout -b blah
... hack lib/Foo/Bar.pm ...
% git commit -am "blah"
% git-cpan send-patch
# update the module
# this automatically rebases the current branch
% git-cpan update

DESCRIPTION

Git::CPAN::Patch provides a suite of git commands aimed at making trivially easy the process of grabbing any distribution off CPAN, stuffing it in a local git repository and, once gleeful hacking has been perpetrated, sending back patches to its maintainer.

NOTE: This module is supported in Linux, BSD, and the like. This module is not supported in Microsoft Windows (Cygwin, Strawberry Perl). See CPAN Testers Matrix <http://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Git-CPAN-Patch> for currently supported operating systems.
