For those of us completely new to open source contributions, i.e. me
:)  What is the proper way to submit changes for review, once they
have been tested and we know they work?

I have a cvs repository which I created and imported in the sources
from the most recent release. I've been committing to this repository.
The release sources are tagged jakarta-ant-V1_00a and let's say my
version for review is wab-ant-V1_00b. Would the command to issue to
create the attachment to send be (on unix or Thompson toolkit-like sh)
        cvs diff -r jakarta-ant-V1_00a -r wab-ant-V1_00b >
wab0100b.pat  2<&1
.pat extension and filename format are my own convention, is there a
std for ant patch attachments?
If I understand the web site instructions the patch should be an
attachment, not in the body, and the subject line should be PATCH:
<insert short description here>. Is that right?
