I was experimenting with applypatch and applymbox to see how it feels like being Linus ;-) and also I saw some trivially correct patches on the list floating unmerged during KS/OLS.
Since I rebase my repostitory to fix up the history often, I needed a reliable way to preserve authorship information when I export the patches via format-patch and slurp them via applymbox. I am sending the following changes to applymbox and format-patch first: [PATCH] tools/applymbox: allow manual fixing and continuing after a failure. [PATCH] git-format-patch-script and mailinfo updates. [PATCH] format-patch: --mbox and --check. I wrote the first one to recover from a situation where an earlier patch failed to apply but I still had many other e-mails in the mailbox. The second one allows format-patch to give ability to optionally add From: and Date: lines as the first two lines after the patch title line. The mailinfo program has been enhanced to grok Date: in the top part of the message body just like From: in the message body can override the sender of the e-mail. The third one is an extra. It lets me export patches in a format resembling UNIX mbox, so I can concatenate the output together and reprocess them through applymbox. After they are accepted, I will forward these trivially correct patches I saw on the list, using the enhanced format-patch; they are expected to be processed with the new applymbox as a practice; by doing this I am also ACKing these patches: [PATCH] debian/ fixes [PATCH] Fix a typo in git-unpack-objects documentation. [PATCH] Cleanup: git-verify-tag-script [PATCH] Install git-verify-tag-script [PATCH] Support more http features: https no cert, .netrc -> auth [PATCH] Document "curl" requirements. - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
