Since all patches are announced via an email if you are subscribed, I
don't really see the point of this. If you want to follow up via email
rather than flyspray, then simply post to the rockbox-dev list instead.
THere's a lot to be said for followups to be kept within the thread on
flyspray though, so they are all kept together.
