git am is used, obviously, to apply the patch.

Greg uses patch with --dry-run to see if the patch would apply cleanly in the first place, if it should be merged to another branch, etc. Neat idea, IMHO.

Sure, but git am is sometimes able to apply the patch at a different point (with --3way). And there's no need to run with --dry-run first: git am will atomically either apply the patch, or fail. I'm not saying that using patch is wrong, just not very useful.

Well, there is always `git apply --check`...
