Sorry, I could have been more clear. b4 is a tool that pulls patches off
lists managed by, and I use it quite often to avoid
manually saving emails and applying. It'll collect reviews etc as well,
and I integrate it with git. That means, if you send a patchset of 3
patches with a cover letter, if I like the series I just do:

$ git b4 <message id of cover>

and it applies it for me, adding links, reviews, etc.

Why not just use git send-email? That's literally what that is for. It's
what I use to send out patches.
