I'd actually steer clear of branches unless they are really necessary.

To create a diff file between 1.9.17 and the current tree just do

1) cvs update to current stuff
2) cvs rdiff -u -r release-1-9-17 samba

this will spit out a complete diff file between 1.9.17 and the current
release. It uses the fact that we tag the repository each time we run

Similarly, to create a diff file of what changed between 1.9.16p11 and
1.9.17 just do:

	cvs rdiff -u -r release-1-9-16p11 -r release-1-9-17 samba

You need the rdiff and not the diff command as the diff command won't
put the correct subdirectory prefixes in the diff file.

Cheers, Andrew
