Maybe I wasn't clear, but this is not to track patches sent to Linaro;
what we want is to track patches sent upstream by engineers working for
Linaro.  It already is the company's policy that all patches sent
upstream should be CCed to this magic address, and feeding that address'
mailbox to seemed like a better alternative than
continuously having to subscribe patchwork.l.o to the mailing lists of
all different projects that Linaro engineers may contribute to (we don't
have a list of all these projects beforehand and we expect it to grow
all the time).
