We do actually have this functionality, though it's only partially exposed in
the web UI at the moment. Click into any patch that has an associated series
and look at the top right corner. There are three links: 'diff', 'mbox', and
'series'. The last of these will download the patch with all its (series)
dependencies. We don't currently expose a way to download an entire series via
the web UI so you'll simply have to find the last patch in the series and click
into that.

You can also do this via the REST API. The 'git-pw' tool allows you to download
both a patch+dependencies and the entire series:

  git pw patch apply [--[no-]deps] [PATCH_ID]
  git pw series apply [SERIES_ID]

We'll probably add a more detailed series view to the web UI in a future
