I usually try to run a script doing this automatically.  However, it can
only detect when a checked-in patch exactly matches what have been sent
to the ML.  So the situations where we have "OK to merge with this
detail fixed" will not be caught by the script.

Also, I wish patchwork could automatically close a patches/series when a new
revision is sent to the ML. This is another class of patches which
remain on patchwork when they should probably not.  I did try to close
those manually in the past, but got overwhelmed, so I do not do that

That being said, I still use git-pw to fetch and apply patch and series.
This is really convenient when I am not working on the host where I have
my mail client.
