If the `n` query parameter is supplied and additional changes exist
that match the query beyond the end, the last change object has a
`_more_changes: true` JSON field set.
The `S` or `start` query parameter can be supplied to skip a number
of changes from the list.
Clients are allowed to specify more than one query by setting the `q`
parameter multiple times. In this case the result is an array of
arrays, one per query in the same order the queries were given in.

****
Additional fields can be obtained by adding `o` parameters, each
option requires more database lookups and slows down the query
response time to the client so they are generally disabled by
default. Optional fields are:
[[labels]]
--
* `LABELS`: a summary of each label required for submit, and
approvers that have granted (or rejected) with that label.
--
[[detailed-labels]]
--
* `DETAILED_LABELS`: detailed label information, including numeric
values of all existing approvals, recognized label values, values
permitted to be set by the current user, and reviewers that may be
removed by the current user.
--
[[current-revision]]
--
* `CURRENT_REVISION`: describe the current revision (patch set)
of the change, including the commit SHA-1 and URLs to fetch from.
--
[[all-revisions]]
--
* `ALL_REVISIONS`: describe all revisions, not just current.
--
[[download_commands]]
--
* `DOWNLOAD_COMMANDS`: include the `commands` field in the
link:#fetch-info[FetchInfo] for revisions. Only valid when the
`CURRENT_REVISION` or `ALL_REVISIONS` option is selected.
--
[[draft_comments]]
--
* `DRAFT_COMMENTS`: include the `has_draft_comments` field for
revisions. Only valid when the `CURRENT_REVISION` or `ALL_REVISIONS`
option is selected.
--
[[current-commit]]
--
* `CURRENT_COMMIT`: parse and output all header fields from the
commit object, including message. Only valid when the
`CURRENT_REVISION` or `ALL_REVISIONS` option is selected.
--
[[all-commits]]
--
* `ALL_COMMITS`: parse and output all header fields from the
output revisions. If only `CURRENT_REVISION` was requested
then only the current revision's commit data will be output.
--
[[current-files]]
--
* `CURRENT_FILES`: list files modified by the commit, including
basic line counts inserted/deleted per file. Only valid when
the `CURRENT_REVISION` or `ALL_REVISIONS` option is selected.
--
[[all-files]]
--
* `ALL_FILES`: list files modified by the commit, including
basic line counts inserted/deleted per file. If only the
`CURRENT_REVISION` was requested then only that commit's
modified files will be output.
--
[[detailed-accounts]]
--
* `DETAILED_ACCOUNTS`: include `_account_id`, `email` and `username`
fields when referencing accounts.
--
[[messages]]
--
* `MESSAGES`: include messages associated with the change.
--
[[actions]]
--
* `CURRENT_ACTIONS`: include information on available actions
for the change and its current revision. Ignored if the caller
is not authenticated.
--
[[change-actions]]
--
* `CHANGE_ACTIONS`: include information on available
change actions for the change. Ignored if the caller
is not authenticated.
--
[[reviewed]]
--
* `REVIEWED`: include the `reviewed` field if the caller is
authenticated and has commented on the current revision.
--
[[web-links]]
--
* `WEB_LINKS`: include the `web_links` field in link:#commit-info[CommitInfo],
therefore only valid in combination with `CURRENT_COMMIT` or
`ALL_COMMITS`.
--
[[check]]
--
* `CHECK`: include potential problems with the change.

returns the patch as a single file inside of a ZIP archive. Clients
can expand the ZIP to obtain the plain text patch, avoiding the
need for a base64 decoding step. This option implies `download`.
Query parameter `download` (e.g. `/changes/.../patch?download`)
will suggest the browser save the patch as `commitsha1.diff.base64`,
