I am not familiar with the patch contribution process but would like to know
more about the full workflow.  How can people clear the accepted patch?  How
do patch contributors know if the patches are accepted and committed?

I will look into how patchwork change patch status.  I can try to modify the
patchwork code to automatically check if a patch was accepted and change its
status accordingly.

This is a nice feature.  Are there are lot of patches submitted to the
Bugzilla?    I understand that contributors could be confused when they
contributed to many projects.
