After using MR with Benjamin yesterday I came to the conclusion that we may
just ask the requesters to provide the branch they used to create the patch,
then provide it using "git diff master..devbranch", other than that, I think
reviewboard is more advanced than gitorious MR.

Just to say, I moved Kamoso last week and it was harmless, i think that we
could change repositories in few days lapse.
