Start by reading the coding_style_policy.pdf so you know how to format the source code. Kicad team is pretty picky about style. Then create a patch using bzr from the top of the project like this:

$ cd <project_top>
$ bzr diff > /tmp/<patchname>.patch

Then email that *.patch file to the kicad-developers mailing list as an attachment to a simple all textual email (no html), and please be sure to put

[PATCH] as the first text of the subject so we do not lose it.
