Stupidity on my part - I missed it.
I have now checked in this last part.

This is because I did not know about "git am".

If I have understood correctly, I have to save the entire email to a
file, and then run "git am <file>" to have the patch applied.  But
this automatically commits the patch, even if I do not want to do so.
So then if I decide that the patch is wrong in some way I have to
revert the commit and reset the sources.  But if I like the commit
I can push it straight away.  Right ?
