I wrote a patch for git patchsets in post-review a long while ago:
It got two "ShipIt" replies, but Christian opted not to push it
upstream. I'm told there's a Google Summer of Code student working on
improving the DVCS support, but I'm still using my patch for my project.
Basically, my approach to git is to create a new branch from the
upstream master and then cherry-pick commits onto it. Then I run my
modified post-review command which auto-generates a separate review for
each patch. It constructs the "parent diff" for each one after the first
in the branch.
