I'll join the nitpicker group here to. :-) It is frowned upon sending
patches that are base64 encoded, since one cannot comment about
specific code changes when replying easily.  So, just "cut & paste"
your patch into the mail message instead, and put the ChangeLog entry
before the actualy diff.

Changelogs are conveniently made with Emacs. I usually send patches and their changelogs as separate attachments (changelog before patch) to the mail. In Mozilla, attachments are included in replies (if they are not considered binaries). I don't know about other Mail User Agents.

The patch is generated with something like

diff -urpN --exclude=ChangeLog --exclude=*~
