I've just added a comment about a patch and it took me to:

a. Login to commitfest app
b. Locate the patch and review I was replying to
c. Fetch archives thread index, refresh the index page for ~10 minutes
to see my reply appear
d. Copy message id and finally register comment in the commitfest app

(IIRC, something close to that was already described in this thread)

With the proposed approach it would only take me to include

@fest comment "Patch applies cleanly"

and possibly

@fest status Needs Review

to update the patch status and that'd be it.

PS: yes, I could just copy message id from the sent mail in my MUA, but
I like to make sure links I post aren't broke, so still I'll need to
wait until archives catches up to double check.
