The "submitting a patch" guidelines seem to refer to program patches... since this is only an HTML update, here it is.

I would have said ", please <em>include..." as opposed to " must remember to..."

Putting your replies at the top of the message instead of inline where appropriate and leaving every single bit of the original message and all of the other replies and observations below makes for a very untidy archive. As was arleady mentioned, the original messages are still available. We don't need you wasting space and bandwidth because you couldn't be bothered to hit the DEL key a few times.</p>

Again, I would shorten this to "In addition, PCYMTNQREAIYR, as we..." (but with the link, of course), or alternatively you might consider spelling out the acronym (leaving the link on the whole phrase), or spell it out and provide the acronym (with link) in parentheses after.

When on POSIX, do as POSIX mandates.
