It was discussed in another thread, but I think it would be great to improve
the git support by handling patch-sets in post-review.
The idea would be to support the following workflow:
Create a branch based on the upstream master (the repository that RB is
Apply several patches on that branch, each dependent on the others.
post-review should be capable of automatically generating a review (using
--guess-summary and --guess-description) for every patch since the
divergence from upstream, properly handling the linking to a parent diff.
