Patchwork is a web-based patch tracking system designed to facilitate the contribution and management of contributions to an open-source project.
The URL for OpenEmbedded’s Patchwork installation is http://patches.openembedded.org. The installation is also accessible by the link in the navigation bar under oe services.
git am < file
If the submitter of the patch has not written the Subject of the email according to the OpenEmbedded policy for commit messages, then use
git commit --amend
to edit the commit message before you push.
You could also use the script in contrib/patchwork/pw-am.sh this script will fetch an 'mbox' patch from patchwork and git am it
usage: pw-am.sh <number1> <number2> ... example: 'pw-am.sh 12 13' will get the patch from http://patches.openembedded.org/patch/12/ and http://patches.openembedded.org/patch/13/
It is desirable to update the state of the patch in the patch queue. This could also be added to the script.
Update the state of patches
You have to register to be able to update the state of patches. You can use the Web interface or `pwclient`.
`pwclient` can be used for example to retrieve patches, search the queue or update the state.
All necessary information for `pwclient` is linked from the bottom of http://patches.openembedded.org/project/oe/. Use
for an overview on how to use it.
