Hey Allison, there are two things you can do that will make life much
easier for people to review and apply your patches.  First of all,
move the version information below to after the "---" line.  If you
want to keep this information in the git commit log, just move the
"---" line after you run the "git format-patch" command.

Secondly, run the command "git config format.thread true"; this is the
default in newer versions of git, but apparently you're not using a
new enough version of git.  You can also use "git send-email --thread"
if you don't want to set the git configuration variable.  The other
possibility is that your mailer is stripping the in-reply-to: and
references: header, so the mail threading is disappearing.  I never
used vnet.ibm.com's mailer, so I don't know if it's responsible for
stripping mail headers, but I tend not to trust VM or Lotus Notes'
standard adherence... fortunately for IBM the CIO's who make the
purchasing decisions tend not to know the first thing about Internet
Mail Standers or RFC's.  :-)

                                       - Ted
