Hi David,

The quoted-printable is fine - patchwork just uses a MIME decoder to do 
all the heavy parsing work.

However, there's nothing about the attachment to indicate that it's a 
patch (well, aside from it actually being a patch...), as the mime type 
is application/octet stream. At present, patchwork will consider text/x-
patch or text/x-diff attachments as patches, and try and scan any 
text/plain attachments for patch-looking contents.

I could add application/octet-stream as a 'there might be a patch in 
here' class of attachments (as with text/plain), but that may be a bit 
of a kludge. Do you get many patches in this format?
