trailers: retrieving code-review trailers
This commands allows you to easily retrieve code-review trailers sent in reply to your work and apply them to the matching commits. It should locate code-review trailers sent in response to any previously submitted versions of your series, as long as:
either the patch-id of the commit still matches what was sent, or
the title of the commit is exactly the same
You can always edit the trailers after they are applied by using
rebase -i and choosing
reword as rebase action.
Most commonly, you just need to run:
b4 trailers -u
Update branch commits with latest received trailers.
Accept trailers where the email address of the sender differs from the email address found in the trailer itself.
-F MSGID, --trailers-from MSGID
Look for trailer updates in an arbitrary tread found on the public-inbox server. Note, that this is generally only useful in the following two cases:
for branches not already managed by
when a single larger series is broken up into multiple smaller series (or vice-versa)
Only useful with
-F. By default, b4 will only look for your own commits as far as 1 month ago. With this flag, you can instruct it to look further back.
