community and was inextricable from lab infrastructure. The new script
introduced in this patch aims to resolve these issues. This script is
intended to serve as a reference process for creating series artifacts.
A "series artifact" is an archive containing a copy of the DPDK source
code with a patch series applied. We perform a test build prior to
creating the archive as well. At the Community Lab, these archives are

used in production.

The script depends on the "pw_maintainers_cli" and patch parser scripts
in the CI repository. It also depends on pygit2 for managing the DPDK
repository and pyyaml for parsing the configuration file.

This script does not implement handling of the dependency labels. There
is an ongoing effort to get this implemented into Patchwork as a
