The command-line instructions are essentially the same as the detailed ones
I posted in response to your request, except that:

1. Mine didn't deal with the multiple merge issue (easy modification)
2. These gloss over the "make sure it builds step", which in general isn't
possible without either checking in /everything/ you've got and tagging it
so you can get it back, then checking out everything on the release
candidate branch, or using a separate copy of the CVS tree like I suggested.
3. These are a lot less explicit.

It seems to me that it might be better to integrate the multiple merge
instructions into what I already wrote.
