Sorry but no. Stop being offensive.

Eh? There is no such logic in there.

Again, no it doesn't, and you're just throwing crap out because you
failed. Unlike most of the "normal" processes, the patch system allows
you to submit both by *email* and also by *web* for those cases where
the emails get screwed up by ones company mail server. That's why the
web interface exists - to give people *flexibility*.

The fact is, the web interface is merely a front end interface that
generates an email and submits it in the usual way by email - an
email that you can perfectly well generate that is *very* close to
the standard email that git format-patch generates.

The *only* difference is that the patch system wants a KernelVersion:
tag in the email _somewhere_ and it doesn't matter where it appears.
Git even has support to do this.

  git format-patch --add-header="KernelVersion: $foo"

Why does it want the kernel version? Because when we were running 2.4
and 2.5 kernel versions in parallel, it was important to know which
tree the patch was being submitted for. It has continued to be required
because it means when there's problems applying a patch, it gives me
the additional information about the base used for the patch (and it
keeps on being useful to have.)

Lots of people use it without a problem. I've just run the parser
through its offline tests, and it parses email content correctly.
I've no idea what you're doing wrong, but it looks like something
pretty serious if it didn't parse the subject line.

Rather than getting stressed about it, why don't you send me an email
the first time something goes wrong so I can investigate, turn on
debugging to capture the problem email?

FTTP is here! 80Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
