What I normally do is to do a separate checkout for the branch I want to
patch.  In this case, a cvs log on /HISTORY shows it as:


You know it is a branch rather than a tag because it has four numbers.
(The developers FAQ has stuff on this.)  I then make changes to that
CVS, and do a commit while sitting in that CVS tree.  I applies the
changes against that branch only.

I usually get a cvs diff from the HEAD tree, and apply that patch file
against the branch.  Let me know if you would like me to do it.
