I use gmail, that has a broken threading model
(it groups emails by subject lines; apparently not using any "in-reply-to"
relationship to build up a thread), so I do not care. At all.

I do not know about the preference of the next most likely
people to review submodule code, so I refrained from giving advice
depending on reviewer preference, but instead gave advice that would
ease your work as I recall.

After thinking about it further, you may want to make sure that the
topic is coherent and it is easy to discover all related emails in an
archive of the mailing list. https://public-inbox.org/git/

So in the cover letter you could link to the previous thread,
or just continue that thread by replying to an email that is appropriate for
the series.
