Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] myfirstcontrib: hint to find gitgitgadget allower
Date: Thu, 31 Oct 2019 14:03:38 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191031210338.152529-4-emilyshaffer@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191031210338.152529-1-emilyshaffer@google.com>

GitGitGadget, a handy tool for converting pull requests against Git into
Git-mailing-list-friendly-patch-emails, requires as anti-spam that all
new users be "/allow"ed by an existing user once before it will do
anything for that new user. While this tutorial explained that
mechanism, it did not give much hint on how to go about finding someone
to allow your new pull request. So, teach our new GitGitGadget user
where to look for someone who can add their name to the list.

The advice in this patch is based on the advice proposed for
GitGitGadget: https://github.com/gitgitgadget/gitgitgadget/pull/138
