This doesnʼt help with the MIME portion , but you can create an nndraft group called eg 'patches' with 'G m', then do git format-patch --numbered-files -o ~/News/drafts/patches --cover-letter HEAD~4 Which would create files 0 1 2 3 4, with '0' containing the cover letter. Unfortunately '0' is not a valid article number, so you'd have to script shifting all the numbers up by one. You'd probably want a '--add-header=Gcc:<something>' to get the gnus archiving to work. Since itʼs an nndraft group, you can do 'e' on any individual message to edit it, and then use 'D S' to send all messages (or mark individual messages with '#' and do 'D s'). Robert Footnotes:  What's wrong with git send-email's mime handling?
