I too struggled for ages getting these right;
first set up your ~/.gitconfig something like:

$ grep -v '^#' ~/.gitconfig
         name = ...
         email = ...

         bcc = ...
         smtpServer = ...
         confirm = always

         editor = /usr/bin/gvim -f

When you commit your changes, the first line of the commit message becomes your 
patch file name and email subject, so keep it < 63, leave a blank line, then 
expand on the details in subsequent lines < 80, so I find it easier to run:

$ git diff @^ > COMMIT_MSG

hack away at that then:

$ git commit -F COMMIT_MSG ...

$ git format-patch --to=cygwin-patches@cygwin.com -1

which will write a file like:


hack away at that to improve it then:

$ git send-email --to=cygwin-patches@cygwin.com \

and answer the confirmation message if you enabled that above.

Does anyone know of a way to set different default patch email addresses for 
newlib/ and winsup/ trees?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
