For bigger patchsets, you should combine get_maintainer.pl with sending
emails so individual patches will go to all role-based entries from
get_maintainer.pl and to all mailing lists. You can (and sometimes even
worth to) skip proposals based on git-history.
Then the cover letter which should go to everyone... or most of people
and linked from individual patches.
For example the easiest I think:
1. Put all folks and lists as "Cc:" in cover letter.
2. Send everything:
git send-email --cc-cmd "scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-git --no-roles --no-rolestats" --to linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org 0*
Optionally you could add --no-git-fallback to get_maintainer if it
proposes some irrelevant addresses.
Other way is to send first cover letter and then reference it via
1. To get everyone for cover letter:
scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-multiline --interactive --separator=\'' --to '\' --no-git --no-roles --no-rolestats 00*
2. git send-email --cc linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org ... 0000*
3. Finally all patches with in-reply-to:
git send-email --cc-cmd "scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-git --no-roles --no-rolestats" --to linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org --no-thread --in-reply-to='foo-bar-xxxxxxx' 000-* 00*-*
