I must intonate a 'mea culpa' here because I was the one who proposed
the current kde-qt.git branch model (
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.kde.devel.core/61168 ). I did not
know it would make extracting the patches nearly impossible, and it
was not said at any point in the thread (or at least I cannot find
anything other than the "OK, we can do that" in
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.kde.devel.core/61172 )
