Your patch still just shows up as a straight-up attachment in many E-Mail clients. Note the difference between what your patch (https://public-inbox.org/git/20180413174819.GA19030@bod/raw) and a patch that's not an attachment (https://public-inbox.org/git/0f0942043678fe76f8d654306482ee26fac643f0.1523617836.git.johannes.schinde...@gmx.de/raw) look like. Try to "wget" both of those and apply them with "git am" on top of master, and note how what you're doing results in a broken patch. This is why Documentation/SubmittingPatches suggests using format-patch & send-email. You don't *have* to use those tools, and can use something that's compatible with what's expected on-list, but what you're doing isn't that.
