Ah, and the other piece to this workflow is the existing nmbug-status,
which collects the results of canned searches so folks without a local
notmuch can use the tags [1].  Folks using a local nmhive will
probably want to run their own status-genertion via a post-commit hook
in their nmhive repository.  Then their users will have their
search-results updated after each web-initiated change.  If you also
wanted them to see updates from changes to tethera's nmbug repository,
you'd probably also want a cron job that tried to fetch and merge
tethera's changes with the nmhive changes:

  -o---o---o----o  tethera/master
    \            \
     \            o  nmhive/status  (auto-generated merge for nmbug-status)
      \          /
       o---o----o   nmhive/master (with web-initiated changes)

You'd want to resolve conflicts somehow, but any resolution strategy
is probably fine, since it's unlikely that we get conflicts very
often.

Cheers,
Trevor
