Publishing the submission via git is an extra step for the patch 
submitter.  If that happens, the reviewer can test just be cloning that, 
instead of first closing the PostgreSQL one then applying the patch.  It 
removes the "how do I fish the patch out of the archives?" problem from 
the reviewer's side of things.
