The biggest problem is that it's a bit annoying to see obfuscated addresses everywhere (see the way your email was quoted above), and I'd say most of the time this happens just because the checkbox to obfuscate emails is checked by default in Gmane when people subscribe a new mailing list there. Aand since most lists don't do that doing so only in Gmane is somewhat pointless. However, if the official list archives also omit email addresses I guess I can live with that. > FYI the three patches/emails you sent before look perfectly right. This is the other, related problem: the changes look OK, but patch number 1 CC's myself and contains a "From:" line in the commit message that shouldn't be there -- this happened because when I saved the posts with my original patches and re-applied them with `git am', the obfuscated email addresses were used in the new commits and git later saw it as being different from what I have set in my git config.
