Although you can work through the website, there is git integration
through git-pw which allows to interact with the patchwork server
through the command line.

To setup git-pw you need to register on the website first:

Then login and generate an "api token" under user authentication:

To configure git pw in your local elfutils.git checkout:

  git config pw.server
  git config pw.token super-secret-hex-token-string
  git config pw.project elfutils

Or add this to you .git/config:

	server =
	token = super-secret-hex-token-string
	project = elfutils

Now you can easily inspect and interact with the patch queue:

$ git pw patch list # list all pending patches
$ git pw patch show 45831 # to show more info on a particular patch

And then either git pw download ID or git pw apply ID and/or git pw
update to work with the actual patch.
