hg qnew [-e] [-m TEXT] [-l FILE] PATCH [FILE]...

create a new patch

qnew creates a new patch on top of the currently-applied patch (if any). The patch will be initialized with any outstanding changes in the working directory. You may also use -I/--include, -X/--exclude, and/or a list of files after the patch name to add only changes to matching files to the new patch, leaving the rest as uncommitted modifications.

-u/--user and -d/--date can be used to set the (given) user and date, respectively. -U/--currentuser and -D/--currentdate set user to current user and date to current date.

-e/--edit, -m/--message or -l/--logfile set the patch header as well as the commit message. If none is specified, the header is empty and the commit message is '[mq]: PATCH'.

Use the -g/--git option to keep the patch in the git extended diff format. Read the diffs help topic for more information on why this is important for preserving permission changes and copy/rename information.

Returns 0 on successful creation of a new patch.
