comment How do I get a linux kernel patch set from the mailing list?
I also found this: patchwork.kernel.org which is a LITTLE simpler to download, but still a lot of clicking etc. Plus there's no good search I can find, and if you jump into a patch set in the middle after a google search it doesn't seem like there're any "next / previous" links

If someone comes up with a better answer I'll accept it.

comment How do I get a linux kernel patch set from the mailing list?
ketchup cannot extract patch sets from the mailing list as far as I can tell. It's just able to download patch sets that are already bundled and available as patch files on kernel.org.

comment How do I get a linux kernel patch set from the mailing list?
I didn't see the link from LKML since I was looking at the header email from the patch set with no diff. Thanks. This is pretty darn unpleasant: I was hoping for something that would let me select a set of messages and save them as a raw mbox, or even let me download a day's worth as a raw mbox (I can edit it locally). For any patch set of significant size this will be very painful. But, it will work! Thanks.

As I mentioned, I'm NOT subscribed to the mailing list.

comment How do I get a linux kernel patch set from the mailing list?
Yes, of course. As I mentioned in my question, I'm very familiar with patching and building the kernel. But my question is, where do I get the file containing the patches (the "/tmp/mbox" file in your example)? The post says "save the mail", but save it from where? You can't just save it from the web-based mail archives (at least not the ones I've found) because you get a big bunch of HTML-encoded stuff that can't be used for patching.

comment Is it possible to use indirection for setting variables?
This (using eval) is the correct answer. It's portable, adheres to the POSIX standard, and is the one used all over the place in more advanced shell scripts. One thing, though: using export on the same line as the assignment is not portable.

comment Why does the local::lib shell code use eval and $()
It's probably simplest to understand if you just run the command inside the $() and look at what it prints. That's what the shell will eval. Just to be clear, $() is the new-fangled way of writing backticks (command interpolation)... it's nice because it's easily nestable. Otherwise there's not much difference.

You're right; I'm not sure how I misread those. Thanks.
