until now I could successfully suppress my curiosity about those tip:foo
messages, but as the bot (or one of them) has now catched me too, I want to
ask what it is.

Searching for "tip(-)bot" or similiar doesn't reveal some useful info (for
obvious reasons). Could someone give me an URL to source or documentation
about that tool so that I can enlight myself about it's meaning?

AFAIK tip-bot is a set of shell scripts used by _T_glx, _I_ngo and _P_eter. :)

So messages from tip-bot are just acknowledgments (like those from Greg) that a patch has found it's way into one of the trees, with the difference that tip-bot sends those acknowledgments to lkml too, whereas Greg's scripts send them only to involved parties and not the lkml?
