Btw, the "patchwork" system was created to do just this: Observe patches sent
to a mailing list, and collect them into a web-based list, where discussion
and review can happen in a patch-centric way. Example:

The Linux project has been using this system to manage patch contributions for
many years now.

It may be a bit too webby, but it's example of another system that tries to
address this bit of the process.
