This page helps, but I am still confused.  First, I appologise for being 
CVS challenged.  While I use CVS alot, I generally avoid the more 
aspects of branching, just making minimal use of tags.

If I want to add a change that will make it into the next version of 
(GRASS 5.1 pre2?), what do I do?  Do I do the following?

  cvs update -r release_grass500pre1_20_may_2001
 apply my changes
 cvs commit

What will happen to changes checked in at the head?  I presume they will
not make it into GRASS 5.0, but will they be incorporated into GRASS 5.1?
How do we do work on the GRASS tree that we want to apply to GRASS
5.1 but not GRASS 5.0?  

Will there be 5.0.1 and similar feature improvement releases, or is 5.1 the
only suitable place for non 5.0 features?
