Fedora glibc sources are from git, and the bit diff is just generated
diff between the upstream snapshot and corresponding Fedora snapshot,
sans a few Fedora-only directories (which are packaged as extra tarball).
Jakub I guess this would be some more work but why don't you just use
git format-patch to get all the patches for the commits between the
baseline and the top of the tree ?
That would give you a set of discrete patches that mirror the commits
you have in the git tree.
