Which is fine, and you are almost there, but you do not want

 (1) "From 99023b..." that is not part of the message (it is a
     delimiter between multiple patches when/in case a file contains
     more than one);

 (2) "From: Andrew..." that is the same as the e-mail header in the
     message I am responding to;

 (3) "Date: ..." which is older than the e-mail header in the
     message I am responding to---the latter is the date people
     actually saw this patch on the mailing list, so it is
     preferrable to use it than the timestamp in your repository.

So in this case, I'd expect to see, after the "-- >8 --" line, only
"Subject: " line, a blank and the log message.
