I just wanted to make the addition that for emailing patches around,
git has a lot of decent tools.

`git-format-patch origin` will generate patch files for all commits
that aren't in origin yet... it will also give you the commit
messages/diffstats/etc in the patches.[1]

`git-send-email <patch files>` will send the email off for you with
the patches included.  This is best to set up with git-config for repo
specific settings.[2]

And to Carsten, when you receive patches you want to check into your
git branch, use git-am on the emails.[3]
