Sorry, I still don't get your idea.

The benefit of many intermediate commits is to allow other developers to test 
my changes and give feedback, and also to prevent changes from deviating too 
much from the main code-base thus making merging harder later.
I thought it is a central idea of such community driven projects.

I don't see any benefit of creating 10 intermediate patches for some mirror 
server if nobody tests them.
If the results are finally reviewed as a whole, then I could as well make one 
big patch in the end. I don't want to do that.

I believe Git has good tools for branches but it doesn't help if nobody 
"pulls" from my Git branch.
