Getting a patch for a commit-Github

The easiest way is to click on the url and navigate to the page showing the diff. Then, add “.diff” to end of the url. Then wget the url.

Eg:

URL of commit

https://github.com/bananacakes/bravo_2.6.35_gb-mr/commit/600a07aa5f728e81640456c7f7020fa0c888ab9b[/code]

Add .diff and use wget from shell:

wget https://github.com/bananacakes/bravo_2.6.35_gb-mr/commit/600a07aa5f728e81640456c7f7020fa0c888ab9b.diff[/code]
