Please add support for patch files, and not just diffs when viewing a commit. Patch files can be downloaded and passed to 'git am' to import them into our own repository, without having to add a remote and fetch all of it to cherry pick.

    I thought this must be an existing feature, and I was looking for that! Please add support so that we don't need to download entire project archive every time. It would be much beneficial if we could have upgrade package kind of thing to download. This will save a lot of time, effort, bandwidth etc.

    Thanks!
