One point I'm not yet clear on:

For the patchwork system, what methods of inclusion of patch in email
are acceptable?

+ attachment type text/plain?
+ attachment type text/x-diff?
+ attach using C-c C-a in gnus but choose "inline" rather than as
  "attachment"?
+ paste inline?
+ paste inline with special gnus separators --8<-- ?

does it matter how the patch file is named?

Also, what requirements are there on how to *reply* so that your message
gets lumped by patchwork into the same patch item, rather than creating
a new item? Can the subject line be modified?
