Btw, _please_ change your script to make sure the email has both "git"
and "pull" in it somewhere. Without that, I don't see it with my
normal search criteria for git pull requests, and during the merge
window that often means that emails like that get overlooked.

The preferred model tends to be to have "[GIT PULL]" at the beginning
of the subject line, but even just a simple "please pull" in the body
will trigger my search terms (together with the "git repository" thing
from the boilerplate), so whatever is most convenient for you.

This comes up pretty much every single merge window. People, please..
I do try to notice pull requests and patches (for patches, please put
"[PATCH x/y]" in the subject line) even when they don't trigger my
usual search terms, but it really does help when emails match my
simple rules.. I get too much email, making it easier for me to sort
out pull requests really does make a difference.
