Just rabble-rousing here, but, until Alexandre stops accepting them, I
plan to attach all my patches. I /am/ willing to mark them as "prefer
inline display" or whatever it's called, which my mailer lets me do,
but personally, I prefer not even to do this unless they're very, very
small (one hunk).
Since I've been doing lots of bullet-lists lately, here's a couple more:
In support of attached patches:
o Easier to separate out and organize in a filesystem
o Less likely to munge international characters
o No possibility to confuse carriage-returns
from the e-mail with carriage-returns from the patch
o Easier to view with syntax highlighting
o Usually not automatically included in replies
o Specifies a file-name for the patch
o Doesn't /ever/ line-wrap (!)
o No cut-and-paste to apply the patch
o Allows us to turn on auto-line wrapping in our e-mail clients,
which, in turn, makes wine-devel more readable (sometimes).
o pretty icons in some clients ;)
In support of inline patches
o easier to read for some people
I say, tough cookies. Stop using elm (or yahoo) and get a real reader
