Jonathan Kulp discovering that Thunderbird messed up
the line endings of patches.

I'm not familiar with Thunderbird.  Are you able to set it
up with a different content-disposition, maybe something
to send a file as binary, ie unmolested?  If not, do you
have access to another mailer?

I searched around for some info on this and think I've found the correct way to set up Thunderbird.

I've attached a patch that implements Graham's requested corrections; I'll follow up with another to add the Turkish accidentals to the table in pitches.itely. I would have taken a little longer and done both together, but I want to check if the new email setup is working.

'Fraid it isn't. The patch still had DOS endings. But it applied cleanly
after I changed them.  It's now pushed to origin/master.

Using "Content-Type: multipart/mixed;" is good, but the encoding
of "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit" looks suspicious. Can this
be changed?

If it is, I'll add a note to the contributor's guide describing how to set up Thunderbird.

We're not quite there yet, but definitely do this once we are :)
