About patches:

I find tracking down URL's and opening attachments a pain, and enough
of a pain that reviewing a patch is less likely to happen on my part
when that's the only way it's in the message.  

I have no objection to the use of savannah or other ways of describing
a patch, but I would appreciate it if patches are emailed in such a
way that the text of the diff appears as straightforward plaintext in
the message.  (It's perfectly fine with me if a URL or attachment is
there in addition, of course.)

This way, emacs works really conveniently; I can just reply and gnus
will automatically include the text so that it is possible to comment
on it meaningfully.  It also means that the details of the patch are
right in front of my eyes, and grab attention more quickly, and thus I
am much more likely to investigate and see what I think.
