I think the best thing is to send them to this list at
kaffe at rufus.w3.org *and* to kaffe-bugs at transvirtual.com. For the latter,
you could use the report-kaffe-bug script in the distribution.
The format should be a unified or a context diff (diff -u or diff -c).
diff is a program that is part of any Unix installation and (I suppose)
part of the cygnus/win stuff. Diff is used like so: "diff old new".
Read the man page. I don't think there are more "formal" requirements.
One thing I should add, though: comment the fixes.
For instance, changing
#if 0 && defined(OPTION_X)
without any comment as to why you believe OPTION_X shouldn't be
honored is something that will most likely be ignored.
