I've a fork of the original tool that works for me:


git format-patch -o patches HEAD~1
postreview --username=<user-name> --password=<password> --diff-filename=patches/0001-myfix.patch
--debug --description="description-of-my-patch"  #(add -p if you want to publish right away)

The patch is uploaded on and the link is appended to the description.

Hope it works.

formatted patch is uploaded to some public hosting site and will append the link in the description.
The committer can then get the original patch with all author's info and apply it using git
