+outputs the appropriate +git send-email+ command to use:
---------------------
-$ git send-email --to buildroot@buildroot.org outgoing/*
+$ ./support/scripts/get-developers outgoing/*
+---------------------

+Use the output of +get-developers+ to send your patches:
+
+---------------------
+$ git send-email --to buildroot@buildroot.org --cc bob --cc alice outgoing/*
---------------------
Note that +git+ should be configured to use your mail account.
