At least, it makes it easier for someone else to pickup the patch set,
rebase it and push it if for a reason or another I don't find the time
anymore to do it.

Oh nice, thanks a lot!

I didn't know "--cover-letter" for git-format-patch and I never heard
of --range-diff. 

I was using meld and a very manual process for that that was also error
prone as you can't store individual patch files in git (the ChangeLog
is lost in that case).

I'll try to remember to check that out next time I send a new revision
of a patchset.
