git-email integrates git and email with Emacs, it offers two main functions for sending email with git.

  • git-email-send-email will send the marked files as patches using your mail client of choice. This means that you have to first run git format-patch to generate the patches.

  • git-email-format-patch will ask you for a base revision and generate patches for all the changes that occured between the revision and the current HEAD. It will then prepare the patches as email messages in the same way as git-email-send-email.

If you want to easily apply patches you have recieved via email, you should checkout piem.

See the manual for more details.




You can send patches and bug reports to the git-email-devel mailing list.
