This is all the same, everything is tightly integrated.

Personally I just create another local git branch and make my
modifications there, in gnu/packages/....scm. In case things work out,
it is then trivial to create a patch (git commit + git format-patch)
and to send it to the list (you may even use git send-email, which
is in a separate output of the git package).
