I suggest that should be "git am", as an existing known format for email
patch submissions, for any case except where the patch has already been
committed (and really "git am" format could probably be used there as
well), the patch would be excessively large (whether because of large
generated files or otherwise) or the patch contains mixed character sets
which require it to be attached in compressed form to avoid it being
mangled. We can discuss details regarding e.g. scissors lines, but I
think we should still aim for patch submissions that are valid for "git
am" in some form - and in particular, that use "git am" markings to
separate the commit message from other remarks (e.g. differences between
revisions of the patch) that are not intended as part of the commit
