"separately from your commit message" wants to be clarified.  It
sounds as if GGG will send a separate message.

I am _guessing_ that you meant something like "the body of your
proposed log message ends with your sign-off and followed by a line
with three-dashes on it.  After that three-dash line, and before the
diffstat and the patch, is an appropriate place to write additional
information that are meant to help reviewers during review but will
become irrelevant after the review is done.  Your PR description
will appear there for a single patch contribution".

If we do not explain the space after the three-dash line elsewhere,
perhaps we should do so separately, like we talk about cover
letters.

Thanks.
