## Submitting patches
Once you've got some commits ready, you can submit them to the configured
mailing list. You simply run the following:
git send-email HEAD^
The list will evaluate and accept it or provide feedback. If you need to make
a change do so and amend your last commit with `git commit --amend`. Then you
can resubmit version 2 of your patch.
git send-email --annotate -v2 HEAD^
You can iterate each version of your patch the same way. Use `-v3`, `-v4`, etc.
You probably noticed the `--annotate` flag, this lets you add some extra
information about the patch without it being added to the commit history.
Please see the tutorial above for more in-depth info on how this works.
