How to create patches

Asked by Gabor Karsay

Assuming I changed something in Awn or Awn-extras and would like to share it, what is then your preferred way of creating a patch? I managed to checkout and install from trunk, but otherwise I don't know much about bazaar and don't feel comfortable with branching, merging and that stuff. I can create patches with "diff" and apply them with "patch", but is there a special way or command to create a patch, that is preferred in Awn or Awn-extras?

We like branches especially for medium to large sized patches, where you push your branch on LP and reguest merge.

For smaller patches it's enough to checkout trunk, apply your changes in the tree, open a bug and attach the output of `bzr diff` to the bug.
