Stacked Git

Project page
Man page

StGit is a Python application providing similar functionality to Quilt (i.e. pushing/popping patches to/from a stack) on top of Git. These operations are performed using Git commands and the patches are stored as Git commit objects, allowing easy merging of the StGit patches into other repositories using standard Git functionality. StGit is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

Note that StGit is not an SCM interface on top of Git and it expects a previously initialised Git repository. For standard SCM operations, either use plain Git commands or the Cogito tool.

For more information, see the README file in the archive.

Please report bugs via the project page or the StGit users mailing list.
