Alright, I agree with you. Thank you for the tip "svn patch".

May I ask you one more question just for my learning purpose? If I ask
my partner who works in a different company also use git, when he
sends me the files he modified and together with .git/ directory. I
can put all his files AND .git under partner/ directory. Then I can
have his commits one by one. Is that correct?

Thank you.
