The patchwork has same issue as wiki w.r.t to spam and phony account creations,
disabling the register page from active links reduces it tremendously. I will put interactions
on wiki on how to still use it after register link is not shown. The functionality is still there
but it can be seen on website.

its a heuristic and best effort approach its not totally automatic. e.g. if V2 of a patch is send
and V1 is still there then it might close V1 if hashes are same. OE-Core patchwork is mainly
for reference as it was decided for cherry picking patches etc. for local use its not the patch
management solution for OE-Core as much as it is for other layers in there.
