NAME

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

VERSION

version 2.1.0

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.
