3.3.2 Automated and manual testing

When a merge request is opened, a bot automatically adds the Patch::new label to it, and it enters the countdown cycle. GitLab triggers automated testing which ensures that the patch completes make, make test, and make doc. Afterwards, the Patch Meister manually runs make check to verify regression tests. If both steps pass, the merge request is labelled Patch::review. On failure, the status is updated to Patch::needs_work.
