Navigate to the branch you're interested in, using git checkout as
described above.

You can use git log to view commits to that particular branch you're

With -p to see the patches inline, if that helps.

Patches are listed in reverse order, use -<n> to seen the last n
commits. I usually also use --oneline a lot.

Use git format-patch to export patches. 

Briefly check out rev-parse for an overview on how to select particular
revisions and ranges. Before you get more familiar with that, just using
-<n> is probably more straightforward.
