this patch is our effort in combining Patchwork with PaStA (Patch Stack
Analysis). We described our intention in detail in our mail 'Patch
We have to download all patches in a project in order to analyze and
compare different ones. This is a one-time job. Later on, incoming
patches are downloaded individually (similar to what snowpatch does).
This approach allows us to keep the data between patchwork and PaStA
We have understand the problem of server load. Do you have any
suggestion for a solution?
>> Updated REST API version to 1.2
>> New REST API url: api/1.2/
>> New internal url: project/<project_id>/list/mbox/
>> New project rest api field: patches_mbox
>> Like patchwork.example.com/project/<project_id>/list/ the final project.mbox
>> only includes patches. Careful naming has been made in case the api should
>> support export of a whole project in the future as well.
