git diff misses the parent commit ID and the commit message. The output from 
git format-patch has the commit message, but still misses the parent commit 

Note that upstream Gerrit has a feature to download files from each change, the 
full patch as well as the full revision, plus you can edit the files on the 
web, not just the commit message. Our Gerrit doesn't have those features 
because we can't upgrade and we aren't using the new Gerrit UI.
