I recommend that you FIRST use 'git send-email' to send mail to
yourself, and debug that it works.  Once you know git send-email can
actually send mail to yourself, only then would I update the config to
try and send to the list.

Also, remember that the list has a human moderation in the loop for all
first time posts (whether you are subscribed or not); depending on
whether your git configuration is slightly different than your normal
mail, your patches may be stuck in a moderation queue; it's always worth
waiting 24 hours rather than just three before asking if mail was lost.
