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.
