Hi; I use the patchwork install at
mostly for monitoring qemu patches I've sent. It's very handy,
but I do have a feature request I'd like to propose...
Most qemu patches get sent to the list as multi-patch sets with
an initial "[PATCH 00/nn]" "cover letter". Unfortunately patchwork
doesn't do anything with the cover letter, so it just shows the
Would it be possible for patchwork to also handle the 'cover letter'
email, so that:
* there's a single URL you can refer to for the whole patchset
(which could link to the patch URLs for all its parts)
* patchwork recorded the overall rationale for the patchset as
documented in the cover letter (and discussion on it which was
sent as a reply to the cover letter)
(Perhaps patchsets should be automatically turned into
patchwork bundles? I'm not sure.)
thanks in advance
