Dear diary, on Sat, Jun 11, 2005 at 03:32:30AM CEST, I got a letter
where Junio C Hamano <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...
> This git-format-patch-script is what I use to prepare patches
> for e-mail submission.
> Typical usage is:
> $ git-format-patch-script -B -C --find-copies-harder HEAD linus
> to prepare each commit with its patch since "HEAD" forked from
> "linus", one file per patch for e-mail submission.  Each output
> file is numbered sequentially from 1, and uses the first line of
> the commit message (massaged for pathname safety) as the
> filename.
> $ git-format-patch-script -B -C --find-copies-harder HEAD linus .patch/
> creates output files in .patch/ directory.
> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>

Any reason why this was not applied? It appears kind of cool. Well, I
will probably take it and extend cg-mkpatch with it so I don't need it
in Git, but I'm so altruistic and want to bring at least a bit of light
to the gloomy dark world of the poor core Git plumbing users.  ;-)
