+The advantage of using patchbomb is that allows everybody to go over
+the code and comment on it before the changesets are pulled into the
+repository. The mails sent out by patchbomb contain all the metadata
+needed (name of committer, date, parent changeset, etc.) for importing
+the changes into the repository, just as if the changesets had been
+pulled using ``hg pull``.
