If you're diffing against CVS, this will do:

	cvs diff -u -p -N . > my-diff.txt

Diffing against a private tree is effectively the same (use "-u -p -N"
as the diff(1) arguments), but you need to provide two directories and
add a -r (recursive) argument:

	diff -u -p -N -r my-orig-dir my-changed-dir > my-diff.txt

Finally, send `my-diff.txt' to the mailing list.
