about improvements at Sourceware
, the site that holds the repository
for many projects in the GNU toolchain and beyond.

Although email based git workflows are great for real patch
discussions, they do not always make tracking the state of patches
easy. Just like our other services, such as bugzilla, mailinglists
and git repos, we like to provide zero maintenance infrastructure
for tracking and automation of patches and testing. So we are
trying to consolidate around a shared buildbot for (test)
automation and patchwork for tracking the state of
contributions.
