I agree, that's good for people using GitGitGadget.  So if we're
focusing on individual contributors to Git, that may be enough (or
having the ability to run tests on their own machine may be even
better ;-)).

But a reviewer or maintainer cannot count on all contributors using
GitGitGadget.  Hence a bridge from patches sent on the mailing list to
git commits that a system like GitHub Actions can consume becomes
important.  Snowpatch is such a bridge.

In other words: this isn't about changing how tests are executed ---
it's about going from patches on list to git commits that can be
tested.

Neat!  I look forward to seeing what you build.  (Is this related to
the bitmaps-using-midx-ordering work?)

Thanks,
Jonathan
