patchwork gives them IDs and lets you do lookups using them, that's what
I'm doing.  You can get the ID from a git commit by piping the output of
git show into parser.py from the patchwork source, it works a lot of the
time but things like editing the commit message will break it (this is a
theme with my scripting around the mail stuff...).

Mine *mostly* gets threaded, it's relying on being able to talk to
patchwork to figure out the message ID at the minute so if the patchwork
lookup fails for whatever reason it'll just use on what's in the commit
for the CC list and not thread.  That isn't ideal, especially when I'm
travelling and my network connection isn't the best, I keep meaning to
try to figure out a better way which would probably be based on git
notes as discussed earlier.

Yeah, I do that as well (I have an outbound patch queue I rebase against
-next, this also tells me if stuff starts conflicting with other work).
I can see the automated e-mails be useful but it might be tricky for a
bot that's only looking at git to figure out which people and lists to
CC to ensure visibility unless we do the annotation thing, it's not just
the patch submitters that want visibility - I did the patchwork stuff
due to user demand for that with some help from Brian Norris.

Ooh, interesting...
