Dear Amir,

Yes, I applied each patch manually to my tree, fixed it up where needed,
then after rebuilding and testing each one I committed it and regenerated
each patch. Thank you very much for your advice, I will take it into
account and make the necessary changes. In the meantime, do I add other
tags in the order they are received also (such as Reviewed-by:) and am
I safe to add these in when I re-send the patches with the changes you
and others have suggested (or would that offend people that have
offered the tags)?
