+This chapter will try to cover all the needed knowledge to write a new
+patchset for autoepatch, as well as to maintain the ones already
+present in the distribution.
+<title>The patchset's script</title>
+An autoepatch patchset consists at least of two atoms: a directory,
+whose name is also the name of the patchset, and a bash script, inside
+that directory, named the same way with ".sh" extension. That script
+is the core of the patchset, as it will tell autoepatch where to find
+the files to patch, what kind of patchset it is, and whether to fail
+or not if the patching is not completed as intended.
