NAME         top

       stg-export - Export patches to a directory

SYNOPSIS         top

       stg export [OPTIONS] [patch]...

DESCRIPTION         top

       Export a range of patches to a given directory in unified diff
       format. All applied patches are exported by default.

       Patches are exported to patches-<branch> by default. The --dir
       option may be used to specify a different output directory.

       The patch file output may be customized via a template file found
       at "$GIT_DIR/patchexport.tmpl",
       "~/.stgit/templates/patchexport.tmpl", or
       "$(prefix)/share/stgit/templates". The following variables are
       supported in the template file:

           %(description)s - patch description
           %(shortdescr)s  - the first line of the patch description
           %(longdescr)s   - the rest of the patch description, after the first line
           %(diffstat)s    - the diff statistics
           %(authname)s    - author name
           %(authemail)s   - author email
           %(authdate)s    - patch creation date (ISO-8601 format)
           %(commname)s    - committer name
           %(commemail)s   - committer email
