We do not want to apply "git show" output that munges the log message, period. If you want to give patches to somebody (or to yourself) via e-mail or via sneaker-net, "git format-patch" is there for you. Do not butcher "am" to accept a format that is not meant for patch transport in the first place. If you want to screw something in to your shelf, you would use a screw and a screwdriver. You do not try to hammer a nail using your screwdriver, find that the screwdriver is not very useful as a hammer and modify the screwdriver to hit your nail. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
