Thanks, will apply.

If it's one of these "in a blue moon" things I don't think it matters.
Whatever is easier.

In general, patches have lots of advantages: (a) you can apply it
regardless of version, and (b) pushing the email containing them back and
forth with commentary etc is very powerful.

So I would generally see git as a "maintainer handling issue", not a
"these kinds of fixes" issue. Git doesn't obviate the need for having
people look at patches (and that implies sending them out). But git _is_ a
good way to push the finished product out, if it's a recurring thing.
