Alright, here is what you need to do:

 - Use a somewhat-pristine git repository cloned from savannah or whatever.
 - Add a remote: git remote add -f jonathan git://x2a.org/gnutls.git ;
this adds an entry in the .git/config file and fetches refs and objects
from my repository.
 - Create a local branch tracking my remote repository: git branch
--track buffers-redux jonathan/buffers-redux
 - Now you can git checkout buffers-redux to switch to that branch or do
a git diff master..buffers-redux . If you had not created a local branch
you could instead do git diff master..jonathan/buffers-redux

Hope this helps,
