Here are the expectations:

1. Patch will apply against the current git head
2. The command used by custodians is 

  git am --signoff --whitespace=strip < PATCH_FILE

Notice that this strips offending whitespace.  You should take care to not have
any in the first place, though.

I suggest that before sending a patch, you clone the head and try this command.
 That way you can hopefully avoid *some* scorn from Wolfgang.  Speaking of
which... I'll try to preempt him and warn you about top-quoting.  It's
considered bad form.  

Thanks for working on this and we look forward to your patches.
