Sending Darcs Patches with Riseup

I just submitted a Darcs patch to lentil and it was a weird and wonderful experience. I typed 'git status' numerous times while messing with my changes.

The neckbeard within me was satisfied when I managed to whisk off a patch set via the command line. It took a little time to set it up and the documentation was scarce, so here's how I got it done.

I installed msmtp and ca-certificates with:

$ sudo apt install ca-certificates msmtp-mta

Then set up my ~/.msmtprc:

account riseup
user lukewm
auth on
port 587
tls on
tls_trust_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
account default : riseup

Then, to validate everything was working, I let loose the wondrous magic of SMTP:

$ echo "Hi!" | msmtp --debug

Finally, I was able to send a Darcs patches with:

$ darcs send --mail --to

Darcs politely asked me what to send and that was that.

Something wrong? Please raise an issue.
