Sure, likely works much better than grepping svn stat to split stuff,
echo "svn ci foo bar/plop -m 'some commit'" >> pending.txt

once you spent the time you didn't have to learn it of course.

Hmm not documented here, git too old again I guess.

Still it outputs a single mbox mail, not a patch...

which is different to me than "prepare patch as e-mail for submission"

git-show doesn't seem to know about Signed-off-by, so it must still be
done by hand anyway...

Anyway, sed magic works for me.

Well I'm thankful to you and some other who do try to help, but the
first mails after the announce were more like "oh we switched to git
and don't care if you don't know it and actually laugh at you, everyone
knows git, git is nice, git is all logical, it's you who is weird", at
least that's how I felt it.

Something like
svn log svn://svn.berlios.de/haiku/haiku/trunk -v | more
svn diff svn://svn.berlios.de/haiku/haiku/trunk -r30330:30331 | more

which doesn't require a checkout or a web browser; oh well, nevermind.
