22For each patch the code attempts to extract the author from the
23patch description. If that fails it falls back to the author
24specified with --author. If the --author flag was not given
25the patch description is displayed and the user is asked to
26interactively enter the author of the patch.

28If a subject is not found in the patch description the patch name is
2de9b711 29preserved as the 1 line subject in the Git description.
