Internally, in the case of an unpushed branch, Review Board does store a
"parent diff" between the parent revision and the posted diff. However,
this is not exposed to the user. Typically what will happen in this case is
that the parent changes will have their own review requests, in which case
they can be applied in order (the "Depends On" field is useful to indicate
to others the relationship). Sometimes I'll ask someone to update the
review request with a change that applies cleanly to a specific branch.
We're working on dramatically improving our DVCS capabilities, specifically
with regards to posting entire branches at once. This will make it so every
commit on the branch will be included, and `rbt patch` will be able to
apply the entire branch at once, reproducing the commits exactly.
