Is there a reason to not just use arcanist instead of dealing with patch files manually? The PHP requirement is a bit annoying, sure, but that should be available via package manager, and then it's just a matter of cloning two git repositories, modifying your PATH/setting up an alias, and then you're good to go (and all of that is just a one-time setup and not something you should need to worry about ever again). Some package managers even package arcanist directly; I know Nix does.

    I agree with this, and in general am definitely in favour of pull
    requests. Wrangling patch files manually is just so clunky compared to
    everything else I do in LLVM.
