A few steps:

	* Compile Mono from released sources (use the daily packages,
	  since they contain the latest and greatest).

	 	www.go-mono.com/daily for the runtime	
		www.go-mono.com/snapshot for the class library source

	* Prepare your build environment

		tar xzvf mcs-XXX.tar.gz
		cp -a mcs-XXX mcs-XXX-original

	* Develop your class, start by making small changes to existing
	  classes, and installing them, make sure your change is

		vi mcs/class/System/...etc

	* Send us a diff against the original version.  

		diff -ruN mcs-XXX-original mcs-XXX > patch
