Well, I did quote the entire patch and gave a summary of the status as far as I know it. So I really don't understand why I got the "no content free pings" response ... > As I said in my > reply best case the answer is going to be "I have no idea, you need to > resend since I'll need the patch to do anything with it" and worst case > it just won't get seen at all if the thing really did get buried > somehow. So you are saying you don't want pings as followups to patches at all, if the patch is old enough that it probably got lost? I guess that would make sense too, but again it's not obvious to read the canned response that way.
