I finally had some time to try and apply this.
Both this and the original patch that you sent I had problems with -

Here's the response (line number varies in the patches, but otherwise

git am \[PATCH\]\ fixing\ python\ directory\ license\ file\ and\ headers.eml
Applying: fixing python directory license file and headers
fatal: corrupt patch at line 37
Patch failed at 0001 fixing python directory license file and headers
When you have resolved this problem run "git am --resolved".
If you would prefer to skip this patch, instead run "git am --skip".
To restore the original branch and stop patching run "git am --abort".

So I delved into it a bit and see multiple lines like this:

-# You may obtain a copy of the License at
-# Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, software

That particular line is 81 chars long, and I am guessing that your MUA
is reformatting it? If you ran git format-patch can you see if the patch
itself has this in it - and if so send the .patch file rather than using
git send-email?
