Patchwork is a tool to help track patches sent to a mailing list, to make sure they are not lost in the traffic or otherwise overlooked.
To get a new project added to patchwork, please send an email request to support with the following info:
If you have your git tree on git.kernel.org, you can send a request to support to request patchwork-bot integration. Please provide all of the following info as part of your request:
The bot can do some basic housekeeping chores, such as automatically marking patches belonging to older versions of the series as "superseded." E.g. if a contributor sends "
[PATCH NN/30] Do foo to bar", and then after that a new revision "
[PATCH NN/30 v2] Do foo to bar", the bot can automatically mark the 30 patches belonging to the "
v1" of the series as "superseded". In order to work, the following conditions must be met:
Similarly, the bot can archive patches older than a certain period of time if they are still in the "New" state.
If you choose to notify submitters, it would send them a summary email per all patches marked as "Accepted" within one session, for example:
Subject: Your patches were applied to shuah/linux-kselftest.git From: email@example.com To: Submitter Name <firstname.lastname@example.org> Hello: The following patches you sent were recently pushed to shuah/linux-kselftest.git (refs/heads/next): media: rc: self test for IR encoders and decoders Status : Accepted Patchwork: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10643585 Webview : https://git.kernel.org/shuah/linux-kselftest/c/e55c884ea5c66a29a713d41ed0819fee8038762b media: [something else] Status : Accepted Patchwork: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/x Webview : https://git.kernel.org/shuah/linux-kselftest/c/x media: [and another one] Status : Accepted Patchwork: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/x Webview : https://git.kernel.org/shuah/linux-kselftest/c/x Total patches: 3 You are awesome, thank you! -- Deet-doot-dot, I am a bot. https://korg.wiki.kernel.org/userdoc/pwbot
This way, if you are applying a series of 50 patches from the same person, the submitter will only receive a single notification email (as long as you push them in one batch).
