Whether you use the svn command-line client or a fancy client,
then you still need to make sure you know how to operate SVN properly. is a must.

e.g. Make sure to do three things before creating the patch:

* Do 'svn update' to be in sync with the repository in case
someone else changed your files in SVN.

* Do 'svn status' to ensure that you are not including
unnecessary changes.

* Do 'svn diff' to ensure that changes are what you expect.

After creating the patch, open it with a text editor and review it.
