Git Question

git format-patch disable patch number in subject line

When I use

git format-patch
to create multiple patch files at once, the number of the patch is added to the subject line.

Subject: [PATCH <number>/<amount>] <msg>

Is it possible to disable

Answer Source

That's the default action if there are multiple patch files. To avoid numbering patch subjects ever, use -N or --no-numbered. To force numbering even if there is only one patch, use -n or --numbered. The --numbered / --no-numbered spelling pair mirrors other Git commands with boolean options, and other options in git format-patch itself, such as --[no-]cover-letter, --no-thread vs --thread[=<style>], and so on.

For more details, see the documentation.
