You should check in your patches to Git. It's the source tarball from upstream 
that should be in the lookaside cache. The source tarball should normally be 
identical to the upstream one, so better link to the one on the upstream 

To link to a patch you can use a URL similar to this:;a=blob_plain;f=otp-0002-
