At the present time, I have no way of automating the connection between the
debbugs tracker and the patchwork server. It *could* be done, using the
pwclient utility on the debbugs server to close related issues, but I'm afraid
it's not a switch I can turn on today. :(

I haven't seen any way to do that yet, and it might not be true that there is
always exactly one patch per bug that is the correct one. For now, determining
this will be a job of the patch worker.

Btw, glibc apparently uses Patchwork as well. They've even documented their
workflow with it:
