If they have an svn repo I usually check it out, edit in place and send 
an svk diff

If not, unpacking the tar, cp -pR ing it to -orig, and doing a diff -ur 
across the two dirs when done seems to be ok. However, a lot of authors 
are *incredibly* picky about what diff options you use, so I find you 
usually have to re-send at least once with some option you've never 
heard of added to the list :)
