Even better, there's no reason we can't write something to automate all of
this for future contributors. I.e.:

 1. in your clone of Emacs, fix some stuff
 2. commit
 3. hit a key to submit your fix
 4. get prompted with an issue number
 5. done (assuming sendmail-send-it actually sends)

I'll see what I can get done, unless someone else wants a hand at it.

In general, it might be a good idea for us to have an Emacs module written
just for Emacs development contributors, with commands to streamline our

Another command: You're in a Git repository for a project that's on ELPA; one
key should be all you need to update your local clone of ELPA, and find
yourself in a commit buffer to describe the update.
