            Bug ID: 186817
           Summary: EWS: Support fetching latest status for
                    security-sensitive bugs
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Local Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools / Tests
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Following the patch for bug #186291, the feeder queue and webkit-patch will now upload every patch that is attached to a security-sensitive bug and its metadata (e.g. whether the patch is marked r?) to <https://webkit-queues.webkit.org> so that the EWS machines can access it. Currently the EWS machinery in webkitpy fetches the metadata for the patch (via a call to AbstractEarlyWarningSystem.refetch_patch() [1]) before it begins building and testing to check if the patch should still be processed (e.g. is it still marked r?). For patch on non-security sensitive bugs this machinery can access Bugzilla and fetch the latest state. For patches on security-sensitive bugs the EWS bot cannot fetch the latest state from Bugzilla (since it does not have access to view the bug) and hence fetches the state from <https://webkit-queues.webkit.org>. But <https://webkit-queues.webkit.org> only reflects the state of the patch when it was uploaded. We need to find a way to allow the EWS machinery to fetch the latest state of such patches.
