OK, today I got a few questions about regression testing.

1.Is there a way to get exact patch using git and regression testing? I
mean, if I found that, as in tutorial:

a460a2df43aa8eae10b1db028c6020829b009c54 is first bad commit
commit a460a2df43aa8eae10b1db028c6020829b009c54

can I get exact .patch file from this somehow?

2.Is there a way (other then installation of older distros on Virtual
machines) to fix compilation problems with older wine versions? I got good
wine-0.9.15 (yes, I know it is very old...) and bad 0.9.16 and compilation
fails on newer distros (works fine on Ubuntu 6.06 for example).

3,If as above – wine where regression occurred is rather old, and I know
that to this day this regression is still present – should I test with wine
good 0.9.15 and bad 0.9.16 or good 0.9.15 and current git as bad?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my English ;]
