By "this" you mean "using strbuf", isn't it? It is not very obvious,
and I think it would be better to say it explicitly.

This paragraph feels a bit convoluted.
As I understand it, you refactor "safely writing string to a file"
into write_with_lock_file(), and make write_message() use it. The
new function makes it easy to create new convenience function
write_file_gently(); as some of the upcoming callers of this new
function would want to append a newline character, add a flag for
it in write_file_gently(), and thus in write_with_lock_file().
Isn't it better / easier to understand?

You could have, for consistency, add quotes around filename (see previous
error_errno callsite), *while at it*:
return error_errno(_("Could not write to '%s'"), filename);
> - strbuf_release(msgbuf);
> + if (append_eol && write(msg_fd, "\n", 1) < 0)

Same here, and it wouldn't even be 'while at it'
+ return error_errno(_("Could not write eol to '%s'"), filename);
> if (commit_lock_file(&msg_file) < 0)
> return error(_("Error wrapping up %s."), filename);
Another "while at it"... though the one that can be safely postponed
(well, the make message easier to understand part, not the quote
return error(_("Error wrapping up writing to '%s'."), filename);

Nice. And it is static function, so we don't need to come up
with a better function name (to describe its function better).

And thus we got to the last patch in this series. I have skipped
patches that already got reviewed; are there some that you would
like to have second review of? Is there patch series that needs
to be applied earlier that needs a review?
P.S. I'll try to respond to your comments later today.
