You might find the online man pages (
http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man ) useful to find out what
commands like diff and patch do. In the end, there is nothing like
experience. So load 1.4 on a box and start experimenting :)

Take a look at the "Building Patches" article on the wiki (
http://wiki.dragonflybsd.org/index.php/Building_Patches ). This goes
through the process of getting source code and how to create patches.
Once you have the source, take a look at the README file to learn how
to kick off a build.
