Sounds good, I like the idea of being able to selectively ignore mails based
Just in case you haven't seen it, do you know about the X-Patchwork-Hint
header? The header:
- will make patchwork ignore your mail for *all* projects (which may be too
broad, if upstream is using patchwork too). I use this when sending a "this is
what I will be sending upstream" mail to a project list.
Perhaps we could implement your suggestion with something like 'linux-
ext4:ignore', thus allowing hints to be project-specific.
