As an experiment (it may disappear anytime), I generated the
‘patches.json’ file for “patches”, so you can now run:

  guix package -i patches
  patches fetch
  patches list status:committed

The “documentation” is at:

The project appears to be inactive though.  :-/

For the record, on the server side, updating involves fetching the
mailing list archive, converting it to Maildir, updating the notmuch
database, the Git repo, and then the patch list (pheew!):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
date_month="`date +'%Y-%m'`"

cd "$top_dir"
wget -q -O "$date_month" "$date_month";
mb2md -s "$top_dir/$date_month" -d "$maildir"
notmuch new
(cd "$checkout"; git pull)
patches scan
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
