If you create a new directory or add new files, you have to
$ svn add package/mything
$ svn add package/existing/newfile

To create a patch that we can apply with patch -p1, do
$ foo=$(basename $(pwd))
$ cd ..
$ svn diff --diff-cmd diff -x -rdup $foo > ~/mypatch.diff
$ mail -a ~/mypatch.diff -s "blah" buildroot at there

or the like, depending on your preferred MUA and svn defaults.
