Yeah, it would be useful for Git, but it's not necessary of course for your microproject, which is already more than big enough. > > > This is a preparatory step prior to removing the pipes after git > > > commands, which discards git's exit code and may mask a crash. > > > > The commit message should also describe why we need this preparatory > > step.

The issue is that there are different things that can be considered "cover letter". I agree that it's not very clear in Documentation/SubmittingPatches. There is the following which is related to --cover-letter: "Multiple related patches should be grouped into their own e-mail thread to help readers find all parts of the series. To that end, send them as replies to either an additional "cover letter" message (see below), the first patch, or the respective preceding patch." but it doesn't mention --cover-letter and it contains "(see below)" though I don't see what that refers to. > I just reread some of the GSoC related mails in the mailing list and > found one that introduced the usage of 'cover-letter', '--range-diff' and > '--interdiff'. As a newbie, I personally think it would be helpful to include > theses options along with others mentioned in SubmittingPatches. I agree that there is room for improvement in SubmittingPatches. Thanks, Christian.
