#3 was not intended as a dig.  If I can think about git-send-email like a
funny way to do a git-push then that fits better in my head.  I worry about
sending too many emails to a list at once.  I don't worry about sending too
many commits in one push.

While I use git heavily I'm not invested in working on it.  I work on a lot of
projects.  I'd like to be able to do the work, submit it, work through review,
and get out without joining another mailing list and studying their culture.

Is there a document I could look at for submitting a large body of work, or
could I help improve SubmittingPatches to document the process better?

I do have a cause though. It's obscenity. I'm for it.
