patchwork has been set up and is tracking the xorg-devel mailing list:

but it's not very effective yet since so far only a few people have cleared
their own patches off once accepted, so it's full of patches that are already
committed and don't need to be reviewed or pushed by a maintainer still.

It would be nice if it also noticed the patches that get attached to bugzilla
reports, since people are still trained to do that from other projects, despite
our dismal track record at processing patches received that way.
