I believe that if you don't work in git, and prefer to send patches (as
long as git-am likes them) it's not harder for us to merge things (We
can't pull because we want to add a signed-off-by anyway). If you do use
git, publishing your tree makes it a bit easier to track your work, and
our delta. but that is in no way mandatory.
