It depends on who you are. If you are the person running send-email,
then the symptom is your confusion. If you are somebody else, the
symptom is somebody else sending out a bogus email. That patch fixes
only the latter. :)
More seriously, I agree that re-wording the question is a reasonable
thing to do. I do not use send-email, either, so I don't have a strong
opinion on it. The suggestions you made:
> How about "What Message-ID to use as In-Reply-To for the first email?"
> or "Provide the Message-ID to use as In-Reply-To for the first
seem fine to me. Maybe somebody who has been confused by it can offer
more. At any rate, patches welcome.
