I am actually wondering how folks do code review on Linux based on
patch that is submitted. There is no context diff or anything else, I am
used to very sophisticated tools.
When I'm dealing with a large patch or a lot of unfamiliar context, I
usually apply the patches to a branch in a git workspace and work from
there. I export the email (or patch set email thread) to an mbox file and
use 'git am' to apply them as regular git commits. This does still require
typing and reading reviews in an email client, but it's helpful to have my
usual set of tools for diffs and searching.
