Subject: [PATCH 1/3] MyFirstContribution: move cover letter description to a separate file
Date: Wed, 27 Apr 2022 19:04:46 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <7e84d5b286de9dddf28ef1c8f38c7d7c28e266f0.1651086288.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.1226.git.1651086288.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Philippe Blain <levraiphilippeblain@gmail.com>

In a subsequent commit we want to reuse the explanation of the purpose of
The cover letter form the "Sending Patches with git send-email" section
in the "Sending Patches via GitGitGadget" section.

To avoid text duplication, move this explanation to a separate file and
include it in MyFirstContribution.txt.
