Subject: [bug#59523] [PATCH] doc: contributing: Note '-v REVISION' bug in 'git send-email'.
Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2022 19:07:10 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

* doc/contributing.texi ("Submitting Patches")["Sending a Patch Series"]:
Note that a bug in 'git send-email' means '-v REVISION' (with a
space) will not work.
Heya Guix,

Turns out that due to a bug in ``git send-email'', using ``-v 2'' with
a space between the flag and the argument won't work. If you try it, it'll
print a confusing error message, so this patch updates the manual to note
this and remove the space in an example that uses it.
