Yes, diff (with -u option) is the correct tool.
If you changed a single file:
diff -u file.orig file > file.patch
If you changed multiple files and have copied the directory before
diff -Nur postfixadmin.orig/ postfixadmin > postfixadmin.patch
If you use the SVN version and change it, it's even easier:
svn diff > postfixadmin.patch

That's pretty old. Please update to the current SVN version before
creating patches - we have done lots of changes and also lots of fixes.
SVN checkout (should be one line):
svn co https://postfixadmin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/postfixadmin
Then run "svn update" regularly to have the latest version.
If you have problems or questions while porting your changes to the
latest version, just ask on postfixadmin-devel or on #postfixadmin on

AFAIK some people use the SVN version with pgsql, so it must have

[SuSE vs. SUSE] As a friend of mine elsewhere remarked, the picky
spelling capitalization scheme reinforces the idea that Linux is
case-sensitive, so these are "sensitive" issues and certainly worth
discussing (for us, at least)! :) [Shriramana Sharma in opensuse]
