Hello all,

I spent a frustrating hour today hoping to setup git-send-email with
my gmail account. I've been able to confirm the following:

1. git credential works

    # git config credential.helper
    # git credential fill <<EOF

outputs the correct username and password for my gmail account.

2. I (believe) I setup gitconfig properly:

    # git config --get-regexp sendemail
    sendemail.smtpserver smtp.gmail.com
    sendemail.smtpuser ben.kno...@gmail.com
    sendemail.smtpencryption tls
    sendemail.smtpserverport 587
    sendemail.multiedit true
    sendemail.annotate true

The strange behavior I'm seeing is that git-send-email

- prompted me via macOS for keychain access (expected). This happened
twice in a row, during one command invocation.
- prompted me at the terminal for my gmail password (shudders)
- stopped prompting me for messages send after that (all within the 15
minutes of the first two)

Can anyone confirm/explain what's going on? I've never tried to use
git-credential or git-send-email before, so I'm new to those (but
experienced in git).
