The info in CG 1.3.1 will only apply if you have checked out the
entire git tree.  Simple output like "diff old new" is perfectly
fine for me*.

* note: some people want contributors to produce a patch with git,
since this adds more info (such as your name + email address), but
I don't think this is necessary.  If you're familiar with diff,
then by all means use that tool.

I will be at a conference for the next few days, and might not
have internet access.  If anybody else wants to view + commit any
patches from Christian, that would be nice; otherwise, I'll do it
when I return.
