Patchwork-FDO
=============
Patchwork is the missing link between mailing lists and CI. It also doubles
as an searchable mail archive, which aids reviews and development process.
Mainly, Patchwork:
* picks up emails from the mailing list(s) and organizes them in projects and
series
* exports events through an API for each new series (for CI system consumption)
* makes patches/series available as downloadable mboxes
* provides API endpoint for submitting testing results
* those results are then sent, as an reply, to the patch/series on the mailing
list
Secondly:
* provides web UI to browse and download the patches
* gives means of organizing patches into bundles
* give means of tracing patches state, from initial submission to acceptance
It *supplements** mailing lists, not replaces them.
How To?
-------
Check out `docs/` directory. You can find more details and installation guide
there.
This Is A Fork
--------------
FDO flavor of Patchwork was forked quite a while ago due to the original
project stagnancy. Since then it picked up on development speed, going in its
own direction. You can check it out here:
