For the pull-request-style workflow, I usually add other developers'
forks as a remote and then fetch it:

    $ git remote add gl/$username https://gitlab.kitware.com/$username/$project.git
    $ git fetch gl/$username
    $ git log -p master..gl/$username/$branch       # view changes
    $ git cherry-pick master..gl/$username/$branch  # apply changes
