How do you send the mails after they come out of format-patch?
I run a shell command like this (on Solaris 10):
/usr/lib/sendmail -ONoRecipientAction=add-to t...@iana.org <
(The "NoRecipientAction" option pacifies the IANA MTA.)
This is an old machine not under my control, with an old 'git' installed
that I don't use and don't particularly want to worry about porting to.
I generate the patch file on a different machine with git 1.9.3, and
scp it into the email-sending machine.
I suppose that I could work around the problem with this shell command:
(grep -q '^Mime-Version: ' 0001-whatever.patch ||
printf '%s\n' \
'MIME-Version: 1.0' \
'Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8' \
cat 0001-whatever.patch) |
/usr/lib/sendmail -ONoRecipientAction=add-to t...@iana.org
but that's less convenient.
I wonder if it would be enough to do:
1. Always add a content-type header, even if the commit is utf-8 and
contains only ascii characters.
That would help for my case, yes. We use only UTF-8, and to me it
feelds weird that patches are mailed properly if the commit log contains
non-ASCII characters, but don't work if the commit log is ASCII and the
diff contains non-ASCII.
