patch starting from a .diff file.
Since Tortoise SVN is the most common choice I tried to describe the

This could be added in the same section (5.2) righ after the UNIX

--- snippet ---
If you're using Windows make sure you have TortoiseSVN installed.
Right-click on the folder containing the trunk source code, expand the
TortoiseSVN submenu and select 'Apply Patch...'. Browse to the patch
file and select it,  then right click on the file appearing in the
'File Patches' window and click on 'Patch selected'. After you're
done, close the TortoiseMerge window.

Hope this helps.
