You don't have to use git send-email if you can get the emails to
appear on the list correctly formatted and threaded via some other
mechanism. We just suggest it because it's usually the easiest.
As usual with issues of style and presentation with patches, there
is a trade off between time spent by the submitter of patches,
and time spent by those who review, test and apply the patches.
The project's preferences are optimised to make things easy for
reviewers, because (like many open source projects) we are always
short of people with the time and expertise to review incoming patches,
so we try to make it easy for them. For first-time patch submitters
we generally don't insist on exact following of the rules because
it's mostly easier to just fix things up by hand for a one-off
and it's friendlier to new contributors. But if you're a more
regular contributor you shouldn't be surprised if reviewers start
to say "look, please just follow our workflow" after a while.
