yes , we should add what you wrote :
The preferable way to prepare patches is 'git format-patch', but we
accept patches in all formats that we can understand. We 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.
To create patches with git-format-patch and send with git-send-email 
you may have add to ~/.gitconfig some configurations like in  and do
something like :
git format-patch -2 -o outgoing/
git send-email outgoing/
SignOff is not currently required.
The smtp setup depends hardly on Internet provider or host provider. The
contributor has to figure it out him/herself.
suffix = .patch
numbered = auto
signOff = true
coverletter = auto
smtpEncryption = ssl
smtpServer = server.com
smtpUser = username
smtpServerPort = 465
Approved :) ?
