Some wise words for GSOC students (and other recalcitrant top posters): please use text emails and do no top post

If you are a student looking to contribute to strace and considering
submitting a project, first a big thank you for considering strace!

But please be kind enough to follow these simple guidelines when
posting to this list:

1. only send text emails. No HTML
2. do not top post
3. use and abuse the mailing list archive to see how proper
discussions are handled
4. be patient, a reply may need a week to come by
5. use git tools to create and submit patches to the list
6. apply to your code the same code style and indentation used overall in strace

Thank you!

Philippe Ombredanne
