I saw that make-tarball.txt in the admin directory was still referring to CSV in the instructions.

I would like to propose the following changes:

Shortly before the release, cut the branch with the following commands:

-    cvs rtag EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE
-    cvs rtag -b EMACS_`NUMBER'_RC -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE

     where `NUMBER' is the major version number of the release.  This
     makes it easier to see what changes have been applied to the
     branch with:

-    cvs diff -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_BASE -r EMACS_`NUMBER'_RC

     After doing this, increase the version number on the trunk as per
     step 4.

Any feedback is appreciated.
