I agree.

Ah sorry, I overcomplicate the discussion. :-)

To me, it could be nice to have a tiny script (or Guix extension or
subcommand), maybe in etc/ which simplifies the workflow; something
similar to ’etc/committer.scm’.

The workflow would be:

        $ edit code
        $ git commit
        $ etc/mentoring.scm

where etc/mentoring would generate the patch(es), add X-Debbugs-CC and
send; assuming a correct ~/.gitconfig.  And maybe this script could
provide a simple hint for configuring git-send-email.

Even, we could imagine that this tiny script would hint the user to run
“guix lint” or “guix style” before pressing yes at the send step.
