If that gets you the tree and the branch then great.

I'm no git expert but the format produced by that command is not able to be applied by `git apply` or `git am`. No doubt there is a command to apply it but in ten minutes playing around I couldn't find it. Patches can easily be generated using git format-patch -X where X is the number of commits to include in the patch. You can then apply them to using `git am` or `git apply`. You can in this way verify that your patches apply to the tree/branch of whichever maintainer you are sending the patch to. If you try to patch staging with patches that don't apply you get an automated response saying so, I haven't got that sophisticated yet. Hope this helps, Tobin.
