Hi, Guillaume.

First, thank you very much for your work. It is very good.

But it seems that your mail server is breaking lines where it
shouldn't. I got bitten by that too in my first patches, so you can do
the following:

1. Install msmtp and configure it, according to our wiki:
2. add the following lines in your ~/.gitconfig:

        smtpserver = /usr/bin/msmtp

So, you can use git --format-patch and git --send-email to create and
send a patch to the list. I believe git --send-email also formats the
patch if used with the right parameters, but I like to take a look on
the patches before sending them.

@devs: Do you think we should give a little introduction on the
concept of GnuPG and web of trust into the man page? Or should we
direct the users to some interesting urls?

A: Because it obfuscates the reading.
Q: Why is top posting so bad?
