Subject: [OSS-Tools] [PATCH dt-utils] README: provide git format.subjectPrefix line to copy
Date: Mon,  6 Nov 2023 12:29:53 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The oss-tools list is shared between a number of projects, so we should
always use a subject prefix to make it clear where the patch applies.

The README already notes that and references the git man page, but it's
more convenient to just provide a command line that can be directly
copied and pasted.
