Your git mailing configuration / how can I improve mine?

G'Day David,

I've been trying to improve the profile and accessibility of my patches,
in the hope that I might be able to improve the attention I get to the
simpler of my changes, and make it easier for folks to indicate what
changes might need more explanation?

Is there anything you can suggest that would make it easier to do that?
I know obnox found it frustrating having my patches munged by mbox
storage (>From), and so I've started to play with git-send-email, and
I'll try git imap-send tomorrow. 

I do like the way your recent patches have been sent to the list.  What
configuration do you use to get the mail and git tree based patches all
lined up so well?  (I really like being able to read the patches as
mails, and then just fetch them with git to autobuild them)
