Last week someone else asked similar question and it seems to be unclear
how to generate patch files too.
So, it is worth to mention the following basic steps once:

1) Checkout Boost trunk
2) Apply your changes to Boost files
3) Go to root directory of your local copy of Boost trunk
4) Pull recent changes: svn update
5) Resolve any conflicts if occurred
6) Still at Boost root directory level, generate patch: svn diff >
7) Create new ticket:
8) Fill in ticket details, attach my-changes.patch
9) Perhaps it is a good idea to notify boost_at_[hidden] too
