See section 3 of http://openjdk.java.net/contribute/ .

On the corresponding mailing list.

Quoting from the section referenced above:
"The code change itself, relative to an existing changeset in the
appropriate Mercurial repository. The preferred form is generated by
Mercurial's hg export command, with the -g option so that file renames
are tracked correctly. The output of hg diff -g is also acceptable, and
in the worst case traditional unified diffs (-u) are okay too, at least
for simple changes."

The easiest way to do that is to start a separate thread on a mailing
list around an issue.
Broadly speaking, mailing lists are for discussion, while bug trackers
are for facts. Keeping these two separated allows developers to come
back to issues later without having to slog through years of potentially
tangential discussions on the bug in a bug tracker.
