Ok, I'll throw this tree onto master.kernel.org - how about
master.kernel.org:/home/rmk/linux-2.6-rmk.git ?  I think it's in the
same format as your trees:

|-- HEAD
`-- objects

where HEAD was copied from my .git/heads/master, and objects from

Also done. 8)

I still need to work out how to make my noddy script follow different
branches which may be present though.  However, for my common work
flow, it fits what I require.

Ok, how about this format:

        [PATCH] ARM: fix debug macros
        Fix debug EBSA285 and RiscPC debugging macros to detect whether the
        MMU is enabled.
        Signed-off-by: Russell King

Author: Russell King: Sun Apr 17 15:51:02 BST 2005

        [PATCH] ARM: bitops
        Convert ARM bitop assembly to a macro.  All bitops follow the same
        format, so it's silly duplicating the code when only one or two
        instructions are different.

        [PATCH] ARM: showregs
        Fix show_regs() to provide a backtrace.  Provide a new __show_regs()
        function which implements the common subset of show_regs() and die().
        Add prototypes to asm-arm/system.h

        [PATCH] ARM: h3600_irda_set_speed arguments
        h3600_irda_set_speed() had the wrong type for the "speed" argument.
        Fix this.

        [PATCH] ARM: footbridge rtc init
        The footbridge ISA RTC was being initialised before we had setup the
        kernel timer.  This caused a divide by zero error when the current
        time of day is set.  Resolve this by initialising the RTC after
        the kernel timer has been initialised.
