Welcome, Miriam! Good to hear from you.

GitGitGadget exists to repackage PRs (which Git project doesn't use)
into emailed patches (which Git project does use) when the author writes
/submit on the PR comment chain. In that PR I see Johannes asking for a
/submit, but no submit; next I would check if a patch with the same
title came through in the mailing list by searching on the
public-inbox.org mirror:


Looks like, no, a patch with those hotwords wasn't mailed. Finally, I
would check the project to see if it's still an issue:

  $ cd my-git-dir/
  $ git grep is_directory

I still see 30 instances of is_directory in the codebase, so looks like
we haven't made this change. :)

This is also a fine change if you want to make it.

Good luck, and remember it's fine to ask the mentor for the project you
ultimately want to help on for help, code review in advance, etc.
