A quilt patch system implementation in Python

Project Description

python-quilt is a python implementation of the well-known tool quilt to manage a series of patches.

It’s intended to be used within a python application or framework but also provides a console client interface called pquilt.

python-quilt requires the six package for python 2/3 compatibility. It also requires patch and diff tools for creating and applying diffs.

Source code of python-quilt can be found at
