I've always known that github is a read only mirror. But there is git.exim.org, and I set my "origin" to that. > git diff master > thing.patch I did something very similar to generate my patch, but it turned out the upstream branch was not in the right relation to mine. The branch I was working on was based on my local branch from which I build my running server. So first I tried to rebase, and when that proved impossibly hard I had to edit the patch by hand, and that's where the mistake happened. Of course you can say it is all my fault for not starting the development from master in the first place, but it would be much harder to make such a mistake of there was an official development branch for the feature from/to which I could pull/push. -- Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet, if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
