Did you roll your own RB extension, or use one of the two(?) floating  
around on bitbucket?  The experimental server I used was setup last fall,  
and that server didn't look like it supported a series.  (Though the  
extension only supported --outgoing, and not revsets.)

If it was a custom extension, did it provide similar functionality as this  
Phab extension, like downloading the patch/series, knowing what review to  
update, evolve support, and so forth?
