I made a one line change and am create and submit a patch into Bugzilla
but I don't even know how to start. According to the documentation, I'm
supposed to just invoke 'git diff' (or at least, I think that's what I'm
supposed to do). This is good, I get a diff, but the documentation also
mentions something about providing a commit message. How does that come
into play? My only experience with distributed SCM systems is cloning a
bzr repository (and now a git one) so I really don't know what I'm
supposed to do.

Chris's patch doesn't seem to have any commit messages as far as I can
see, it seems like a regular old CVS diff to me.

Any pointers would be much appreciated.
