Pull Request tracker bot

The pull request tracker bot sends automatic notifications when a pull request submitted to a mailing list has been merged to one of the Linux kernel repositories.

:!: At this time, it is only used to track mainline pull requests sent to LKML. We intend to make this a generic service usable by other developers after the initial testing period.

I don't want these!

If you don't want to receive these notices, you have three ways of opting out:

  1. Block all mail from pr-tracker-bot@kernel.org
  2. CC your pull requests to pr-tracker-bot+nothanks@kernel.org
  3. Mention "pr-tracker-no-ack" anywhere in the request body

The first one is the most effective and can be done in one click of a button in most email clients.
