Subject: [PATCH v2 4/5] MyFirstContribution: reference "The cover letter" in GitGitGadget section
Date: Wed, 11 May 2022 01:47:33 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <f6034b0964b1e8cccd25f47aa01d51753672df31.1652233654.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.1226.v2.git.1652233654.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Philippe Blain <levraiphilippeblain@gmail.com>

The "Sending Patches via GitGitGadget" section mentions that the PR
title and description will be used as the cover letter, but does not
explain what is a cover letter or what should be included in it.

Refer readers to the new "The cover letter" section added in a previous
commit.
