Thanks. Not everyone think it is trivial. Especially for the one, who
English are not native language.

Understand, but simple mark 'a' and 'A' to me. I will update patches and
take care for next time instead search whole docuemnt to guess which one
violated. I know I make some mistakes at here. But I am working on many
difference kernel subsystems, some require upper case, some require low
case, someone doesn't care.
I respected all reviewer's and maintaner's time, but I hope respected
the contributor's time also.

Just simple words like , 'a' to 'A' or
run git log --oneline to check subject. I will know what exact means. 

Do you think it will better than below words

"Read and follow please (and then ping us):                  ";
