The old Git tree is misleading, as I used `git commit --amend' to add
the missing periods before pushing. It seemed too petty (and a waste
of people's time) to request a new patch over mere punctuation.

The exceptions you see -- that's me, forgetting to check for
conformance with this arbitrary, impractical and, thankfully,
obsolete rule.
