Is this procedure correct

Pls tell me if the procedure below is correct to
create,checkout from and add to a branch.
I need to create a branch with all latest project
files and then add some new files and directories to
the branch and later merge.

I check out the latest revisions of all the files
c:\Wd\cvs co Mni

And create a branch in the working directory
c:\Wd\cvs tag -b for-new-rel

And then do
c:\Wd\cvs update -r for-new-rel

Now the branch for-new-rel has the entire project with
all the latest revisions of files.
Now whenever I do a add/commit from my working
directory,they will be automatically added to this
Other developers can access the branch as follows
cvs co -r for-new-rel Mni
Now whenever they add/remove a file/directory to this
working directory,it will be changed in the branch and
not the main tree.They don't have to explicitly
specify the branch name everytime they do this,right?

Now to merge,from the working directory
cvs update -j for-new-rel
cvs commit -m "merging"

Pls point any steps I have missed as I need to
implement this immediately in my project.
Thanks a lot,
Jeeva Sarma
