[Adding Linus]

Hmm, so where do people put the hand-written commentry in a git
request-pull formatted request that Linus likes to see when sending
such requests to Linus?

I can understand other maintainers not caring about that, but whatever
solution I have to this must work for sending to Linus as well - the
format of my pull requests are based on an example format from Linus
in the early days of git before request-pull even existed.  They also
satisfy Linus' other need which is that they need to be clearly
identifyable as truely being from the maintainer - I believe Linus
uses format and language in the request as part of that.

The other thing I notice is that the request-pull format is very
impersonal, doesn't say what the summary of changes are (it probably
has no way to do so), and contains no gratitudes - its tone is very
much like an order than a request.  Compare the one I sent in April
with this:
