Hi Silvan,

Thanks for your input. 

I got following link which could be uses full for beginner.

`pwclient` can be used for example to retrieve patches, search the queue or update the state.

I use mutt's standard functionality to get patches from emails which I
did not have to configure IIRC. Depending on whether the patches have
been sent inline (within the email text itself) or attached to the email
I use two different methods.

Inline patches:
I use 'C' (if there are multiple patches you can tag all the mail
messages first and then use ';C') to copy all the mail messages to a
mailbox file. This mailbox file can then be read by the 'git am' command
which applies all the patches (including the commit messages) to your
git tree.

Attached patches:
Select the mail message, click 'v' and save the attached patches to disk
with 's'.

Hope that helps. I would like to hear if other people have more
efficient workflows (using custom scripts for example)!
