The workflow to prepare a patch using Mercurial is pretty much the same as SVN:

# get a clone (checkout) of the repository
hg clone http://hg.python.org/cpython 
# select the branch where you want to fix the issue
hg update 2.7
# make changes on the file(s) and make a patch
hg diff > issue12042.diff

See also http://docs.python.org/devguide/setup.html
Also note that 2.6 only receives security fixes, so it can't be fixed there.  All the "whatsnew" files are also included in the following  versions though, so it might be worth preparing a patch against 2.7.

nosy: +ezio.melotti
versions: +Python 2.7 -Python 2.6
