What would you like to do?
If you want to get the difference between two branches as a diff patch

If you want to get the difference between two branches, say master and branch-name, use the following command: git diff master..branch-name

If you want that same diff in a patch, because patches are handy, just add the output redirect: git diff master..branch-name > branch-name.patch

If you need to import that patch into something like Crucible then you'll need to get rid of the a and b prefixes that git adds: git diff --no-prefix master..branch-name > branch-name.patch
