just a little tip on how patches with request for comments can be done.


# create a dir dedicated for patches
mkdir -p ~/patches

# create a single patch from HEAD
git format-patch -o ~/patches -1

now edit the created patch and add your comments/questions that you
don't want be included in the commit under the '---'.

For example:

And after that use:
 git send-email --to alpine-devel_at_lists.alpinelinux.org ~/patches/0001-testing-.....
An alternate, quicker way to do it is to do:
 git send-email --annotate -1
Which will open a text editor before sending it (but will not save your
changes locally in case you type wrong password for smtp auth)
