    Somewhat tangentially, it's worth mentioning that the comments
    appearing after the "---" delimiter exist only in the original patch
    submissions, not in the final commits. Hence they are not available to
    anyone reviewing the changes after acceptance.

    It would be nice if there was a way to link automatically a git commit
    to an archived copy of the email message in which it was originally
