Very similar.  If you had made local changes to any of the files, then
your local versions of the files are on the trunk and the checkout and
commit updates them just like merging a branch.  The other thing it does
is note files that disappeared between the two vendor releases and mark
them as deleted in CVS (it commits a new "dead" revision).  If neither
of those apply, then the commit doesn't do anything.
