I'm so glad you asked, because I've just been muddling through this.

I've been generating the cover page variously with request-pull or diff
--stat, then running a command like this, with --cc arguments added from
a list I've been keeping of people who respond to the threads:

    git send-email --compose --thread \
        [--cc ...] --no-chain-reply origin/master...

Then I manually edit the subjects to add the version to the [PATCH N/M]
portions. I haven't been using format-patch.

It's interesting that only the first patch isn't applying. I'd love to
hear a better way.
