It doesn't seem that googlecode.com allows one to download arbitrary
changeset from the repo as an archive (yet).  There's a registered
issue[0] about this on their support issue tracker, but I don't see
anywhere that it had been solved.

Perhaps this project has a mirror on bitbucket.org?  This feature is
supported there:


If there's no official mirror, you could provide it yourself by cloning
the repo and pushing it into bitbucket.org.  Or you could try asking the
upstream to do this for you.
