NAME

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

VERSION

version 2.3.0

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 sendpatch 

    # 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 for currently supported operating systems.
