[swift-build-dev] [swift-evolution] [Proposal] Applying local git patches

Hello Valentin,

setting up a repository with a custom branch is so easy today, I don't think that I personally would use this feature (actually, I'm quite sure for most developers it is easier to fork a repo than to create a patch…).

That said, the feature wouldn't hurt me (although I would be quite happy if the Kernel for my Raspi would have a proper repo instead of an arcane buildscript that applies a series of patches)

Best regards,
