Depends on how complex the patch is. For simple patches, in my mail
client. For more complex patches, I save them, and test them using
quilt. "quilt diff" adds color to the patches, this makes them easier
to read. If the patch changes a lot of code, I often open the complete
source file to double-check the new code looks good, and also build the
code and look for warnings.
