send-email: Use To: headers in patch files
It's a minor annoyance when you take the painstaking time to setup To: headers for each patch in a large series, and then go out to send the series with git-send-email and watch git ignore the To: headers in the patch files. Therefore, always add To: headers from a patch file to the To: headers for that message. Keep the prompt for the blanket To: header so as to not break scripts (and user expectations). This means even if a patch has a To: header, git will prompt for the To: address. Otherwise, we'll need to introduce interface breakage to either request the header for each patch missing a To: header or default the header to whatever To: address is found first (be it in a patch or from user input). Both of these options don't seem very obvious/useful. Reported-by: Viresh Kumar <> Signed-off-by: Stephen Boyd <> Tested-by: Viresh Kumar <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
