Usually, this means that you automatically merge the remote's "master".

More like the remote branch: a pull will always be into your current

If you started with a new-enough git (>=1.5 should be sufficient), then 
you will have a local copy of the remote branches under "origin/master", 
"origin/hwn", etc.

Try "git branch -r" to find out (the -r stands for "remote").

Of course, this will only be the last version you 
updated to, the _real_ remote branch can be advanced.

But then, you really only need to call format-patch with that branch, 
since you forked from there:

        git format-patch origin/master
