NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

    # import a module:

    % mkdir Foo-Bar
    % cd Foo-Bar
    % git cpan-init 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 --compose



    # 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.
