Let me postulate that people like to get cover letters with the
git:// URL so they can fetch+look at it, a diffstat and shortlog.

And 'lo, that is exactly what git-request-pull thankfully generates.

are available in the git repository at:
for you to fetch changes up to [SHA]:

In contrast to many a LKML postings which explicitly state the pull
