Kernel developer Josh Triplett has announced the work he's been doing recently on developing git-series, a way to track changes to a patch series over time.

Josh explained in his announcement of this new Git-based component, "git-series provides a tool for managing patch series with git, tracking the 'history of history'. git series tracks changes to the patch series over time, including rebases and other non-fast-forwarding changes. git series also tracks a cover letter for the patch series, formats the series for email, and prepares pull requests...git-series tracks both a patch series and its evolution within the same git repository. git-series works entirely with existing git features, allowing git to push and pull a series to any git repository along with other branches and tags."

Those wishing to learn more about git-series can see the announcement on the kernel mailing list.
