+=========
+Patchwork
+=========
+
+Open vSwitch uses `Patchwork`__ to track the status of patches sent to the
+:doc:`ovs-dev mailing list <mailing-lists>`. The Open vSwitch Patchwork
+instance can be found on `ozlabs.org`__. The ``pwclientrc`` file, required for
+*pwclient*, can be found on the `project page`__
+
+Patchwork provides a number of useful features for developers working on Open
+vSwitch:
+
+- Tracking the lifecycle of patches (accepted, rejected, under-review, ...)
+- Assigning reviewers (delegates) to patches
+- Downloading/applying patches via the web UI or the XML-RPC API (see
+  :ref:`pwclient`)
+- A usable UI for viewing patch discussions

+
+pwclient
+--------
+
+The *pwclient* tool provides an way to download and apply patches, change the
+state of patches in Patchwork, and more. You can download *pwclient* from
+`here`__. Once downloaded, run::
+
+    $ pwclient help
+
+to get more information about the functionality pwclient provides.
