Obtaining pull request source commits

I have a bot that looks at the source of the pull request.  In the event the pull request source is from a private repository the bot will not be able to clone/fetch these commits.  Fortunately, I can obtain the patch (i.e. `git-format-patch` output) from a url provided by the pull request.  Sadly, `git-am` can often fail when `git-merge` succeeds.


What is a reliable way of getting the pull request source branch that works even when the source is private?

Re: Obtaining pull request source commits

Hey @TomMD,


Thanks for being here! I don't believe there is 100% reliable way to accomplish this when calling from private sources, I'll do some digging and post any updates here.
