The usual way is to send an email to the list with subject "[BUG][FIX] Terse
bug description". Or you can leave out the "[BUG]" part.
Then you attach your changeset, et voila! Of course, you've also attached an
SUnit test case illustrating the bug, and thus (a) showing that your fix
does what it claims and (b) ensuring that that bug never crops up again.
As Ken's said, you can do that neatly if you install BFAV. Then you can make
a new changeset, move your changes & fix into that changeset, and just right
click the changeset to get a DecentReviewerNotePad dialog, which makes
sending to the list a breeze.
