The process is documented in CONTRIBUTE, which you will find in the
top-level directory of the Emacs source tree.  In a nutshell, you make
the changes in your local clone of the Emacs Git repository, then send
the changes as an attachment in "git format-patch" form.  We prefer
that you send that to bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org, which will then be
recorded by our issue tracker.
