Sorry to hijack this thread like this, but I can't find a better
forum for it.

Several times I have browsed linux source trees at bkbits.net and
found a changeset I have wanted to have as a patch. I can search for
the changeset, and read the commit messages, and even read the patch
on the screen, but there is no good way to download that patch as a
file (viewing the page source doesn't help because the patch has html
markup interspersed with it).

The only way to get the patch is to either 'scrape' the screen
with copy and paste and try to fix the broken whitespace or to use bk
to clone the entire tree and extract the patch via bk export. It's a
real pain, and for no good reason I can see.

Would it be possible to add a link to the bkbits.net pages to an
un-marked up changeset patch? It would be great to have this for
trees other than linux.bkbits.net too -- like Dave Jones'
agpgart.bkbits.net for example.
