Unified diff patches (diff -u) will work. Patches are good because then
other people can test your changes, and/or comment on them. Send them to
email@example.com (another mailing list)
DragonFly uses Git, so you can have your own local checkout of DragonFly
with your changes, and then make that available so that people can check
out the code separately. If you haven't been using a decentralized VCS
like Git before, it may be a bit of learning, but reactions seem to be
universally positive after the initial learning curve.

It's up to you, but smaller patches make life easier.

Here on the mailing list is good, or post it somewhere and get comments on
IRC. Or both.
