It is a good idea at this point to do a merge checkout to detect any
files that were deleted between the two releases:

        cvs co -jrelease_tag_1 -jrelease_tag_2 dir_to_import_on_cvs
        cd dir_to_import_on_cvs
        cvs commit -m'merge'

If the file is exactly the same in both releases, CVS doesn't bother to
create a new revision, it just applies the new release tag to the
existing revision.
