I think the lack of response is generally lack of interest, and the primary reason for that was because the To/Cc list did not contain anybody who touched this particular file in the past (and no, I am not among them; as contrib/README says, I am often the wrong person to ask if a patch to contrib/ material makes sense). >> From 358fc3ae1ebfd7723d54e4033d3e9a9a0322c873 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001 >> From: Chris Hiestand <chiest...@salk.edu> >> Date: Sat, 14 Apr 2012 17:58:39 -0700 >> Subject: [PATCH] Add Auto-Submitted header to post-receive-email These four lines should not be in the body of the e-mail message (see Documentation/SubmittingPatches). >> Adds Auto-Submitted: auto-generated to post-receive-email header >> This conforms to RFC3834 and is useful in preventing eg >> vacation auto-responders from replying by default >> --- >> contrib/hooks/post-receive-email | 1 + >> 1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-) Even for contrib/ material, please always sign-off your patch (see Documentation/SubmittingPatches). >> >> diff --git a/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email >> b/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email >> index 01af9df..282507c 100755 >> --- a/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email >> +++ b/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email >> @@ -237,6 +237,7 @@ generate_email_header() >> X-Git-Reftype: $refname_type >> X-Git-Oldrev: $oldrev >> X-Git-Newrev: $newrev >> + Auto-Submitted: auto-generated >> >> This is an automated email from the git hooks/post-receive script.

I'd however appreciate comments from people who either worked on this code or list regulars who actually use this code in the production.
