Apparently *users* can do this with git receive-pack┬╣.

Have you (and/or John E.) considered subscribing to pyside and/or 
shiboken? Having the maintainers subscribed to get mail for all requests 
for those projects is probably not a bad idea, especially as us 
neophytes are likely to not assign reviewers otherwise (due to any 
combination of ignorance, inexperience, and/or forgetfulness).

Definitely not :-). https://codereview.qt-project.org/58889 and 
https://codereview.qt-project.org/58890 are both whitespace-only. All 
they do is add spaces between string literals and identifier-like 
tokens, which are required in C++11 to prevent the compiler thinking you 
are using special literals.
