Brandon,

I like the idea.

You could greatly reduce the network traffic by just adding small
incremental patches with each upload:

foofoo.spec
foofoo-$BASE.tbz
foofoo-$BASE-$hash1.patch
foofoo-$hash1-$hash2.patch
foofoo-$hash2-$hash3.patch

linux-2.6.x.tar.bz2 and _small_ patches? ;-) Why not upload a clone of
the git repository once and then just checkout individual commits?

If it's for isolating which patch broke the whole thing, that's another
nice approach.

For ongoing testing of incremental updates, uploading the (new,not
preexisting) patches.

Looking at $SUBJECT I guess "git bisection" is more about figuring what
introduced some regression? which is case a)?

that said, relative to the linux.tbz, the patches still are small ;)
