Nice. But unfortunately the current mailing technology we use allows very limited set of headers and no custom headers: https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/standard/go/mail/mail-with-headers-attachments So while possible, it would require very significant rework... What's the Patchwork 2's new checks infrastructure? If it will still remain a problem (hopefully not), then maybe it's possible to blacklist syzbot address from creating new patches. syzbot can do a lot, but so far does not also generate fixes for the bugs it discovers :)
