Patch Submission Guidelines

I'm planning to submit a patch in the near future and have been poring over
various Xfce web pages, Wiki pages, forum posts, etc. Unfortunately, I've been
unable to find anything with a set of "patch submission guidelines" or anything
Am I just missing something? If not, is there a preferred method / format
(e.g. "diff -uNr") for patch submission? Should I just open a bug report on
Bugzilla and attach the patch?
What concerns me about just submitting it to Bugzilla is that I see a patch
like this one by Mike Massonnet, submitted 2.5 years ago:
It looks like a useful, straightforward patch to me but I see that it was
never implemented. The bug was never closed and testing in 4.10 shows that it
never got added. I'd like to avoid that situation, if at all possible. ;^)
Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks!
