Quilt is a command line tool for managing patches to source code repositories. It helps in managing a series of patches and allows you to track and apply them to different versions of the codebase.

1) Quilt uses a specific directory structure to store patches and applies them to the source code through a series of commands. 2) It operates on top of version control systems like Git or Mercurial, allowing you to manage your patch set alongside your version control workflow. 3) Quilt provides a simple yet powerful way to manage patches and their dependencies, making it easy to make changes and track the history of modifications. 4) It allows you to easily introduce new changes without modifying the original source code files directly, which improves maintainability and makes it easier to collaborate with other developers. 5) Quilt supports patch management with a wide range of file types, including text files, binary files, or even compressed archives. 6) Patches can be applied, unapplied, refreshed, or modified using the quilt command line interface. 7) Quilt maintains a series of patch files with metadata, making it possible to reapply or remove patches from different code versions or branches. 8) It allows for easy management of multiple patch series, making it useful for maintaining different sets of modifications or experimental changes. 9) The tool provides integration with text editors, making it convenient to edit patch files while providing syntax highlighting and other editor-specific features. 10) Quilt is highly configurable through an intuitive configuration file, allowing you to tailor its behavior to your specific needs and workflows.
