I think that should be the "git am" convention (subject header gives
summary line for the patch after removing any [PATCH ...] tag, body of
email is rest of commit message up to a "---" line or the patch itself).
(And that convention should be appropriate for emails generated by any
pull request / patch review system as well.)
