git-am support for naked email messages (take 2)
This allows git-am to accept single-message files as well as mboxes. Unlike the previous version, this one doesn't need to be explicitly told which one it is; rather, it looks to see if the first line is a From line and uses it to select mbox mode or not. I moved the logic to do all this into git-mailsplit, which got a new user interface as result, although the old interface is still available for backwards compatibility. [jc: applied with two obvious fixes.] Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
