noob Question about submitting patches.

Hello,
        I am kind of new to this, but I happened to see that some
members below, submitted patches to this list. How does one go about
doing that ? Is it a simple copy paste of an exported patch, or is the
patch sent to the mailing list directly from the command line ? It be
nice to have someone enlighten me about the general process followed.

Thanks,
VIjay

it depends on which stuff you are going to post for. if you are going to use kernel as an example,
http://omapedia.org/wiki/Releasing_to_Linux_kernel_using_patches_and_emails

it is pretty much easy for kernel -> there is Documentation/Submit* which guides you as well.. if you'd like something very very basic, here

i have same doubt. can anyone explain plz.
