The following command will make a patch between the staging area
(in your computer), and the file you modified:

    git diff -p org-whatever.el

If you already committed your changes to your index (staging area),
then you should compare against a particular branch (in this example,

    git diff -p origin/master org-whatever.el

You email the output to this mailing list, adding [PATCH] to the
subject, and description of what you fixed or changed.

At least, this is how I do it.
