- For a feature, a description of what the detailed functionality that
is being implemented is essential.

- A description of the changes, e.g. how a feature is implemented or why
the change fixes a bug. Hopefully this will be in comments in the code
but sometimes an overview in the e-mail is useful, or have the e-mail
point to an overview in the code comments.

- If the patch modifies more than one file then the output from
'svn status' is very useful to have in the e-mail.
