No. My preference is to add "--initial-skip=<N>", though. When I receive a patch series to reroll another series, I somehow know and verify that earlier N patches have not changed, I detach the HEAD at the last unchanged commit from the previous round and apply the remainder of the new series, so that I can preserve the author timestamps of earlier steps from the previous series. By the time I "know and verify" where the first step that was updated, I have a full series in a single mbox; having "--initial-skip=<N>" would help with that use case, too, and "skipping the first" is a narrow special case of giving N=1. > * Should the public-inbox offer another link to patches 1-n, without > the cover letter?

However, I do not think it is unreasonable to either add another mbox.gz link or replace the behaviour of mbox.gz link so that you can grab a mbox that contains "this message and everything after it in the thread". That way, I could open the first message, see something like this I found in your message: >> Thread overview: 4+ messages in thread (expand / mbox.gz / Atom feed / [top]) >> 2016-08-15 23:06 Jacob Keller [this message] >> 2016-08-15 23:07 ` [PATCH v6 1/3] diff.c: remove output_prefix_length field >> Jacob Keller >> 2016-08-15 23:07 ` [PATCH v6 2/3] graph: add support for --line-prefix on >> all graph-aware output Jacob Keller >> 2016-08-15 23:07 ` [PATCH v6 3/3] diff: add SUBMODULE_DIFF format to display >> submodule diff Jacob Keller and then go to 1/3 and click that "this and everything that follows". -- 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
