You do not need to Cc the entire patch set to everyone. Each patch should have enough information in it to know exactly what the patch does. It's OK if each change log has duplicate information from other patches. The important part is that one should be able to look at the change log of a specific patch and understand exactly what the patch is doing. This is because 5 years from now, if someone does a git blame and comes up with this commit, they wont have access to the patch series. All they will have is this single commit log to explain why these changes were done. If a change log depends on other commits for context, it is insufficient. Thanks, -- Steve
