Since you're using Tortoise, here's the simplest how-to you'll ever  
find. Ever.

1. Create a folder in Windows. Doesn't matter where. Try your Desktop.
2. Right click on the folder and select Create Repository
3. Do an update on the folder, once SVN recognizes it as a repo.  
You'll need the SVN address - something I don't have as I'm not in  
front of my Windoze box.
4. Once the files come down, edit a file. Once you've edited and  
saved a file, the file will get a little red x or exclamation mark or  
something. This means it's different from the working copy.
5. Right click on the repository (on your desktop?) and descend into  
the Tortoise SVN contextual menu item.
6. Click on Make Patch. The file that you edited should eb the only  
one selected. Click okay or whatever it is.
7. Now you have a .diff file. Open it up in notepad and admire your  
work. Upload it to Trac if the patch applies.
8. Drink beer.
