Ugh. It's a text plain attachment. No mailers will scramble that. A lot of mailing lists will drop any non text/plain attachments to prevent works so compressing is probably not a good idea. If the patch is really really big, pointing to an external URL would probably work best.

The problem with the previous patch was Lotus Notes. Lotus is a bit brain dead when it comes to sending attachments (it really sends mail via a special format and then converts it to rfc822). The result is that all attachments are application/octet-stream.

That way, almost any mailer knows how to handle attachment without
scrambling the patch formatting
