I added the first entry, "Bidirectionally sync Patchwork patch status
with Gmail labels". Stephen Boyd and I use a local solution to
coordinate patches in the Linux Clk tree. Our solution requires
Patchwork + the Notmuch mail indexer + Gmail/G Suite to work. My
proposal is to remove the Notmuch requirements and teach Patchwork to
talk directly to Gmail (and vice versa), perhaps via a solution in the
cloud, running on a server somewhere, and not dependent on the uptime
of my laptop.

>From my discussions with kernel devs, I believe there is a reasonably
sized Venn diagram of people that use both Patchwork for patch
tracking as well as Gmail/G Suite for email. Having those two talk
might mean that I never have to use the Patchwork web interface again,
a big win IMO, and I can just use email.

Best regards,
