That's what I thought, too - until I submitted my first patch to any of the
git mailing lists. Folks over there are pushing very very hard for inlined
patches instead of attached ones. Their main reason is that they'd like to
reply and quote the relevant patch portions directly.
As always, there are reasons for both ways of doing things. I'd just like to
reply here that indeed each project has different preferences in this
question, and in fact both preferences exist in the free software world.
