Artem Bityutskiy - May 7, 2012, 8:44 a.m.
From: Artem Bityutskiy <>

The '' script appears to be extremely useful - I do not
forget things as I used to anymore (amending Makefile, signing, uploading
to the FTP server, etc). It is very useful that it suggest me exact commands
which I may just copy-past to my command line.

This patch improves the script and makes it suggest the e-mail announcement
which I may just copy-paste to my command line and the announcement will
be sent using 'git send-email' command. It will include all the interested
parties in CC.

I am now CCing all the people who will be CCed during the announcement. I'll
send mtd-utils-1.5.0 announcement using this script shortly.
