3.2.7 The patch review cycle

Your patch will be available for reviews for the next few hours or days. Three times a week, patches with no known problems are gathered into a “patch countdown” and their status changed to Patch::countdown. The countdown is a 48-hour waiting period in which any final reviews or complaints should be made.

During the countdown, your patch may be set to Patch::needs_work, indicating that you should fix something (or at least discuss why the patch needs no modification). If no problems are found, the patch will be set to patch-push.

Once a patch has Patch::push, it should be sent to your mentor for uploading. If you have git push ability, look at Merging to master.
