To be fair to you, it is _not_ the practices of Linux hackers. For one thing, I am not among them. I think it is perfectly reasonable to expect it to produce a single mailbox, like you expected. The primary reason why "format-patch --mbox" only does one file per patch is because I am too lazy to add a --single-mbox option which does the "right thing". This _could_ be "fixed", but on the other hand the current one file per patch behaviour is arguably more flexible than always creating a single mbox, and that is what I use as an excuse to justify my laziness ;-). - 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
