There are already nothing left to mention for me... ;-)
Thank you, Thom & Erik.

But the draft of my reply mail was:

It's a format of 'diff -u' output(or 'cvs diff -u'). 
'diff' is a common command in Unix, you might know.
The lines starting with '-' means that the lines are to be removed, 
and those with '+' are to be added.

The content of the change can be applied to the file
with 'patch' command. Cut the lines below "Index:..."
in a file (for example install.patch), and then run following
patch command in the same directory that the install.xml is in.
$ patch < install.patch
