Add them to the head first, then back-port to the release branch after

The quickest way to get the release branch is to make a copy of the
head (cp -a) then run "cvs update -r releasebranch_6_3" in the copy.

To sync changes from the trunk to a branch, use "cvs update" with two
-j switches, e.g.:

	cvs update -j releasebranch_6_3 -j HEAD

This is roughly equivalent to:

	cvs diff -r releasebranch_6_3 -r HEAD | patch -p0
