[OpenWrt-Devel] Patchwork and git send-email

How does one get Patchwork to properly associate an update or addendum
to an existing patch / series when sent from git send-email?


While I have set --in-reply-to='<the-message-id-being-replied-to>'
and see the In-Reply-To and References headers both prior to sending
as well as in the delivered messages, Patchwork failed to associate
the messages with the existing patch series.


Would someone share a set of command-line arguments and a manner for
selecting their parameters that consistently works to:

* Have the "cover letter" included in the patch series

* Update an existing patch

* Add an additional patch to an existing patch series


It seems that, at least at one time, sending patches to the mailing
list was preferred over pull requests on GitHub. Is this still the
case?
