Using git-format-patch?

Yes, with this script:

#! /bin/sh

# To prepare input for this program, use
# git-format-patch -n --thread --ignore-if-in-upstream
--patch-with-stat master..HEAD

if [[ $# -eq 0 ]] ; then
   echo "You specified no files" >&2
   exit 1
   for filename ; do
       echo "Mailing $filename"
       sed -e '
/From: / {
To: address@hidden
}' < "$filename" | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t

If I don't use the script and just fed the files to "mail
address@hidden", mailman sees the resulting messages have
no To: header and forces them to be moderated.

I tried doing this automatically with
git-config --add format.headers '"To: address@hidden"'

... but that made git-format-patch add the To: header in between the
start of the Subject: header and its continuation line.   Sigh.
