Another patch to perlrepository.pod, here's the commit message:

    Patches must not be sent via git's format-patch/send-email

    There's no option to git-format-patch(1) that'll generate an E-Mail
    that won't be subsequently destroyed by if it's sent via
    git-send-email(1). Patches should be generated with git-format-patch
    and then attached to a message in a real mailer.

    See "Using git-send-email with" to
    and "I need a `git format-patch --attach-complete' for RT" to from for context.
