As you noticed (correctly), the output of "format-patch" is meant to be usable by "am" that reads from the UNIX mbox format. "From whom" (not "From: whom") lines are traditional message boundaries, and when you are sending your own patch, none of the RFC822 headers (nor the "From whom" line) needs to be repeated in the message body. Thanks. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
