That's great to hear! Glad that you're finding patchwork useful.

The intention is to keep patchwork independent of a particular VCS; 
while most patchwork users are using it with git (myself included), I 
don't want to enforce this requirement on others.

That said, since I'm only using git myself, there may be assumptions 
that creep in unintentionally. If you have particular areas that you 
think are important, please consider contributing a testcase or two, so 
things don't get broken in future :)

Check out apps/patchwork/tests/ for the existing tests. It should be 
fairly easy to contribute more, but do get in touch if you need any help.
