That makes more sense.

Anyway, if you want CVS to handle the 'cvs rm', 'cvs add' step for you,
you  can do a merge from the trunk to the branch.  Assuming you tagged
the base of your production branch like the CVS manual recommends, the
command should be something like:

    cvs up -rPRODBRANCH_1_0 -jRELEASE_1_0 -j HEAD

Just do it in whatever subdir contains the subsection(s) you wanted.  If
the files you are updating are scattered, it may be easier to use 'cvs
rm' and 'cvs add'.
