Turns out we don't have a document on patch submission. The steps are
1) Produce a patch
We take patches in "unified diff" form. That's the form that running the
command "diff -u" outputs. All git commands produce patches in this
If you run git on Windows, you can just use "git format-patch" to create
the patches. If you work with tarballs, you can either install the MSYS
or Cygwin version of the diff utility or use Google to find a better
tool for the job.

2) Submit the patch
People usually submit patches either as bugs in our bugtracker at
https://bugs.freedesktop.org or, send them to this mailing list or show
up in our IRC channel to discuss it.

The whole process is pretty flexible, it's based around two rules:
1) We need to get the patch in an easy format for review and committing.
2) We need to get back o you if we have questions about it.
