As always a categorical "It depends!". git send-email is not for everybody.

If you're new to (Wine) development or you do a lot of janitorial work I
would actually recommend to *avoid* git send-email. See it as an
opportunity to look again at your patch when you manually submit it.
Like a last line of defense to spare you from embarrassment. Git is
powerful and it is kinda cool that you can efficiently submit the 7th
version of a 20 patch series on the same day! But that doesn't means it
is a great idea to actually do it; you'll only get yourself graylisted
by Alexandre.


P.S.: "You" refers to the interested reader and not to Henri.
