Several ways:

Method #1 (pulling changes to a local branch):

  $ git-checkout -b local-3-2-test origin/v3-2-test
  $ git-pull git:// v3-2-test

The just view the changes via "git-log -p:

Method #2 (add a remote reference)

  $ cd $HOME/src/git/samba
  $ git-remote add vl git://
  $ git-fetch vl
  $ git-fetch origin
  $ git-log -p origin/v3-2-test..vl/v3-2-test

Once you have a remote reference (stored in .git/refs/remotes/vl/),
you merge them to a local v3-2-test tree by

  $ git-checkout -b local-3-2-test origin/v3-2-test
  $ git-merge vl/v3-2-test

Remember that "git-pull" == "git-fetch && git-merge" which is why
both yield the same results.
