Hi Tobias,

Thank you for your quick answer.

I did not know. I thought that only person with super power could do that.
So I will do.

However, I am not sure to understand how the merge needs to be ordered.
I have tried with 36789 and 36790.

If I understand well, the basic workflow is:

  git format-patch -N --cover-letter -o patches
  edit patches/0000-cover-letter.patch
  # send as you want patches/0000-cover-letter.patch to guix-patches@
  rm patches/0000-cover-letter.patch
  # wait the bug number
  git send-email --to=address@hidden patches/*.patch
