Yup, it is as easy as that as Mark Jaquith's post suggests

And Arron's instructions fits well westi's post for Windows

When actually attaching patches, it is helpful to others if you
generate your patch from the projects root directory, as Aaron's
Tortoise example did. So keep a clean copy of the tree if you are
working on multiple things or have your own personal customizations --
this is always a good idea anyway so you have test your patch in
isolation before uploading.

$svn diff > fix-problem.diff
