hello jim, thanks for your reply, I think that my question has not some useful information, I should have specify the problem more clearly
I am having some trouble replying and comment on threads in the Linux Kernel Mailing List, I have submitted some patches and then I have received some comments from reviews, I tried to reply to them by just prefixing the subject line with "Re:"
First, I made some changes and commit them using:
git commit -a
Then I have formatted the commit using:
git format-patch master..fix-warning
After that, I have edit the output from:
Subject: [PATCH] description-of-the-patch
Subject: Re: [PATCH] description-of-the-patch
Then, I have send it using:
git send-email --to linux-block at vger.kernel.org --cc linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org name-of-the-patch.patch
I have allready set up the .gitconfig file with following configuration:
smtpEncryption = ssl
smtpServer = smtp.gmail.com
smtpUser = my-email-address at gmail.com
smtpServerPort = 465
It did not worked and what happened is that instead of replying to the reviewer, I end up creating a new thread in LKML... I know the path that I have taken does not seems right for replying to a commit lol, before doing all that, I looked into the FAQ in LKML website, for how to reply to comments I have not find an answer, I have google it, and also I have not find any answer then I tried to press on "reply all" in Gmail App on apple OS it did not worked too...
I posted the question on stackoverflow website, they advised me to use --in-reply-to option with git send-email, so now I have wrote the email and specified that option, I hope it worked.. after all that!
