Git::CPAN::Patch::Command::Import

NAME

Git::CPAN::Patch::Command::Import - Import a module into a git repository

VERSION

version 2.4.0

SYNOPSIS

# takes any string CPANPLUS handles:
% git-cpan import Foo::Bar
% git-cpan import A/AU/AUTHORID/Foo-Bar-0.03.tar.gz
% git-cpan import http://backpan.cpan.org/authors/id/A/AU/AUTHORID/Foo-Bar-0.03.tar.gz
# If the repository is already initialized, can be run with no arguments to
# import the latest version
git-cpan import

DESCRIPTION

This command is used internally by "git-cpan-init", "git-cpan-update" and "git-backpan-init".

This command takes a tarball, extracts it, and imports it into the repository.

It is only possible to update to a newer version of a module.

The module history is tracked in "refs/remotes/cpan/master".

Tags are created for each version of the module.

This command does not touch the working directory, and is safe to run even if you have pending work.

OPTIONS

--check, --nocheck

Explicitly enables/disables version checking. If version checking is enabled, which is the default, git-cpan-import will refuse to import a version of the package that has a smaller version number than the HEAD of the branch cpan/master.

--parent

Allows adding extra parents when importing, so that when a patch has been incorporated into an upstream version the generated commit is like a merge commit, incorporating both the CPAN history and the user’s local history.

For example, this will set the current HEAD of the master branch as a parent of the imported CPAN package:

$ git checkout master
$ git-cpan import --parent HEAD My-Module

More than one ’--parent’ can be specified.

--author_name

Forces the author name to the given value, instead of trying to resolve it from the release metadata.

--author_email

Forces the author email to the given value, instead of trying to resolve it from the release metadata.
