Looks OK in general, although I would need to know a little more of the
semantics. I get back a structure that looks like what's below.

There probably isn't a need to return all that data.  I was being lazy
and returning the entire object.  I'll annotate below.

One thing: the patch server will have to run over HTTPS - that way we
can know that it is who it says it is.

Right, I'm not sure if the computer I'm proofing it on is the best
place for it so I didn't bother with the HTTPS, but should be trivial
to have it.

                   'repository_id' => '1',

Actual patch, in plain text.

                   'name' => 'copy_nowal.v1.patch',
Name of the patch file.

ID of the owner of the patch.
