Hello Andrzej,

I just used your tool and it seems to work, thank you for your work!

Just one tiny remark - I accidentally had a source tarball (~2.8 MB)
in a directory where I used sbosubmit and it failed with the following

[II] creating archive...
[EE] archive: Buffer exhausted

It comes from libarchive and is probably caused by too large size of
output archive.  In current form it's quite uninformative to the user.
Shouldn't it be changed to something better?

IMO though it would be the best if we just sent new submissions and
updates as patches directly to the mailing list as it was done during
the transition from 14.1 to 14.2 instead of using the submission form.
It only takes 2 commands - git-format-patch and git-send-email, much
faster and comfortable.

(BTW, message sent through gmane.org do not show up on the list.  Does
anyone else here use gmane.org?)
