I'd like to send a patch set to another author's commit for co-authoring. But I don't know how.

I don't know much about git.

I've ever sent patch sets and updated my own commits. But I've never sent any patch set to other author's commit in .

Thank you in advance.

If understand your question correctly, you'll have to fetch the patchset you want to edit and submit it for review.

 $ git review -d #####

will fetch the latest patch in the changeset number #### from in your local repository. You'll then be able to follow the normal workflow for updating a change.

Thank you! I will try.

The normal workflow you mentioned is "Adding a Dependency" (

Not adding a dependency, but updating a change (the one smaffulli linked in his answer). The critical part is that you need to make sure you use --amend when you commit so that you update the current commit rather than adding a new commit.
