There is a shell/perl script collection called submaster
(http://www.rocklinux.org/submaster.html) that implements patch
queuing and voting (+distributed use).

Although our queue is usually quite long:


55 Patches open patches - and this is with >50 applied today ...

With this QA and voting queue the commit rate gets quite irregular,
see the graph where submaster is used for rock-linux since Febrary
