Well, the commands are easy enough, but they need to be done on a full
repository. I'll probably have a go at modifying gitweb.pl to return
the mailbox you need to update it sooner or later...
It just needs to return the output from the command below onto a web page.
git format-patch --stdout <commit id>..HEAD
The only complication is turning the tree's SHA1 ID into a commit SHA1
ID so further updates can be done. gitweb.pl needs to search back
through the "git log" output and matching the tree to the commit. ie.
the output from:
git log --pretty=raw | grep -B1 ^tree
