hg import [OPTION]... PATCH...

aliases: patch

import an ordered set of patches

    Import a list of patches and commit them individually (unless
    --no-commit is specified).

    Because import first applies changes to the working directory,
    import will abort if there are outstanding changes.

    You can import a patch straight from a mail message. Even patches
    as attachments work (to use the body part, it must have type
    text/plain or text/x-patch). From and Subject headers of email
    message are used as default committer and commit message. All
    text/plain body parts before first diff are added to commit
    message.

    If the imported patch was generated by :hg:`export`, user and
    description from patch override values from message headers and
    body. Values given on command line with -m/--message and -u/--user
    override these.

    If --exact is specified, import will set the working directory to
    the parent of each patch before applying it, and will abort if the
    resulting changeset has a different ID than the one recorded in
    the patch. This may happen due to character set problems or other
    deficiencies in the text patch format.

    Use --bypass to apply and commit patches directly to the
    repository, not touching the working directory. Without --exact,
    patches will be applied on top of the working directory parent
    revision.

    With -s/--similarity, hg will attempt to discover renames and
    copies in the patch in the same way as :hg:`addremove`.

    Use --partial to ensure a changeset will be created from the patch
    even if some hunks fail to apply. Hunks that fail to apply will be
    written to a <target-file>.rej file. Conflicts can then be resolved
    by hand before :hg:`commit --amend` is run to update the created
    changeset. This flag exists to let people import patches that
    partially apply without losing the associated metadata (author,
    date, description, ...). Note that when none of the hunk applies
    cleanly, :hg:`import --partial` will create an empty changeset,
    importing only the patch metadata.

    To read a patch from standard input, use "-" as the patch name. If
    a URL is specified, the patch will be downloaded from it.
    See :hg:`help dates` for a list of formats valid for -d/--date.

    .. container:: verbose

      Examples:

      - import a traditional patch from a website and detect renames::

          hg import -s 80 http://example.com/bugfix.patch

      - import a changeset from an hgweb server::

          hg import http://www.selenic.com/hg/rev/5ca8c111e9aa

      - import all the patches in an Unix-style mbox::

          hg import incoming-patches.mbox

      - attempt to exactly restore an exported changeset (not always
        possible)::

          hg import --exact proposed-fix.patch

    Returns 0 on success, 1 on partial success (see --partial).
