The patch isn't the problem. It's the commit subject, author and commit
message that I'm after.
If people are happy with “git am -3” being the gold standard (although I
find it pretty horrible how it refuses to do things and then requires
you to run “git am --abort” manually), I can adapt. But I think we need
to define a reference tool. Any tool will do (within reason), but as I
said, we need some level of consensus. And brief documentation how to
produce matching mail messages, ideally.
