-git-send-email-script - Send a collection of patches as emails
-'git-send-email-script' [options] <file|directory> [... file|directory]
-Takes the patches given on the command line and emails them out.
-The header of the email is configurable by command line options. If not
-specified on the command line, the user will be prompted with a ReadLine
-enabled interface to provide the necessary information.
-The options available are:
- --to
- Specify the primary recipient of the emails generated.
- Generally, this will be the upstream maintainer of the
- project involved.
- --from
- Specify the sender of the emails. This will default to
- the value GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT, as returned by "git-var -l".
- The user will still be prompted to confirm this entry.
- --compose
- Use \$EDITOR to edit an introductory message for the
- patch series.
- --subject
- Specify the initial subject of the email thread.
- Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
- is not set, this will be prompted for.
- --in-reply-to
- Specify the contents of the first In-Reply-To header.
- Subsequent emails will refer to the previous email
- instead of this if --chain-reply-to is set (the default)
- Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
- is not set, this will be prompted for.
- --chain-reply-to, --no-chain-reply-to
- If this is set, each email will be sent as a reply to the previous
- email sent. If disabled with "--no-chain-reply-to", all emails after
- the first will be sent as replies to the first email sent. When using
- this, it is recommended that the first file given be an overview of the
- entire patch series.
- Default is --chain-reply-to
- --smtp-server
- If set, specifies the outgoing SMTP server to use. Defaults to
- localhost.
