Thanks, this is awesome.

For reference here's my updated terrible script that I use to apply a
series from a patch id or message id.



import sys
import requests
from subprocess import check_call

session = requests.Session()

arg = sys.argv[1]

    pid = int(arg)
except ValueError:
    pid = None

if pid is None:
    arg = arg.replace('id:', '')
    url = f'https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/api/patches/?msgid={arg}&project=linuxppc-dev'
    json = session.get(url).json()[0]
    url = f'https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/api/patches/{pid}/'
    json = session.get(url).json()

sid = json['series'][0]['id']

cmd = f'git pw series apply {sid}'
