The problem we have, is not excessive number of patches to organize, but
that nobody sends patches. The preferable way to prepare patches is 'git
format-patch', but I accept patches in all formats I can understand. I hope
that this makes things simpler for the new contributors.

Every patch sent, must have a name in the subject of the mail (the subject
must start with [PATCH]) and have description what/why/how the patch does
improve.

The descriprtion how to set up git is useful.

The smtp setup depends hardly on Internet provider. The contributor has to
figure it out him/herself.
