Maybe I'm misunderstanding. It seems pointless to move a branch: Just
check in to it. In terms of CVS commands

cvs update -rrelease22-maint # get a sandbox of the branch
# make modifications
cvs commit                   # make modifications to the branch
cvs update -A                # return to mainline

What am I missing?
