For future versions please make sure the mails sent a fully threaded, so that all the patches are in-reply-to the cover letter mail, rather than each scattered as a standalone mail. The best way todo this is to use the excellent "git-publish" tool. The added benefit of git-publish is that it will CC all the subsystem maintainers whose code is touched https://github.com/stefanha/git-publish It is packaged in Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora & EPEL Regards, Daniel -- |: https://berrange.com -o- https://www.flickr.com/photos/dberrange :| |: https://libvirt.org -o- https://fstop138.berrange.com :| |: https://entangle-photo.org -o- https://www.instagram.com/dberrange :|
