 Hmm, as a youngster who's been around for twenty-something years only (my 
first patch was for glibc, back in 1998) I haven't even heard of this 
patch service before.  It doesn't appear linked to our mailing list either 
and instead you need to go through the hoops of a web interface (and open 
an account first) to submit a change.

 That's precisely what patchworks is for, which has been used to various 
extent for the GNU C library, GCC and GDB already.  All of which projects 
are of similar vintage to DejaGnu and I reckon rather important for the 
GNU project.  Given that our main patch submission channel is e-mail, 
what's the point in using a system that does not accept one?
