      Could you send them inline, one message per patch?  That would
      significantly ease review.

I'll see what I can do.

      (‘git format-patch’ and ‘git send-email’ can be used for that, as noted
      in HACKING.)

I can't find any mention of "git send-email" in HACKING, and there appears
to be no such command.  At least not in the git that I have installed (


Depending on your distribution, it might be part of another package (git-email in Debian, for instance). It is an extremely nice tool. You can generate a patch series by doing:

$ git format-patch <commit>

This will generate a bunch of files called 0001-commit-title, 0002-commit-title and so on. Then just do:

$ git send-email --to address@hidden --in-reply-to <message-id of your first message> 000*.patch

And we'll get all your patches in a nice thread :)

I'll take a look at the HACKING file and add the necessary instructions.
