I've been trying it out too.  I've already found it useful to keep
track of which of my own patches I have pending.

I've been absent a little while from review, but I'm heading back,
and I'm using patchwork to guide me.

I like that it doesn't make the mailing list a second class
citizen.  I'd be willing to continue giving it a try, but indeed I
think it'd be better if more people were using it.  That'll be true
for any tool we end up with.

In the past week, I've been cleaning it up whenever I see that
patches have been pushed, even those that I didn't approve myself,
but of course it'd be better if who approves the patch or
the submitter themselves take care of their own patches.

non-maintainers shouldn't hold back from creating an account
and updating the state of their own patches.  Whatever helps
bringing the load down from maintainers should help your own
patches.  :-)

Here's the current list of who-has-how-many-pending:

As you see, most of the patches so far, since we began tracking a
few weeks back, came from a small set of people.  And I suspect
many of those are actually already in.
