Summary: A different patch queue manager for Git
TopGit aims to make handling of large amounts of interdependent topic branches easier. It is designed especially for the case when you maintain a queue of third-party patches on top of another (perhaps Git-controlled) project and want to easily organize, maintain and submit them - TopGit achieves that by keeping a separate topic branch for each patch and providing a few tools to maintain the branches. TopGit has been designed around three main tenets: (i) TopGit is as thin layer on top of Git as possible. You still maintain your index and commit using Git, TopGit will only automate few indispensable tasks. (ii) TopGit is anxious about _keeping_ your history. It will never rewrite your history and all metadata is also tracked by Git, smoothly and non-obnoxiously. It is good to have a _single_ point when the history is cleaned up, and that is at the point of inclusion in the upstream project; locally, you can see how your patch has evolved and easily return to older versions. (iii) TopGit is specifically designed to work in distributed environment. You can have several instances of TopGit-aware repositories and smoothly keep them all up-to-date and transfer your changes between them.
