Thanks once again for your continued work on improving the EWS, it is
much appreciated =)

Being able to retry a patch without having to re-upload it, and more
importantly without having to ping another person, would be neat. I
don't have a strong opinion about which tasks to prioritize first, tho.

In this line of adding more things that the EWS could test, among the
developers of the GTK/WPE ports we think it would be manageable for us
to have bots run API tests. There is some work we need to do, and the
intention is to start with GTK first, see how it goes, and then add WPE
afterwards. Carlos opened a bug for this, I took the liberty of CC'ing
you assuming that you might want to at least keep tabs on it (feel free
to unsubscribe):
