If the changes which you are merging involve removing
or adding some files,
update -j will reflect
such additions or removals.
cvs update -A touch a b c cvs add a b c ; cvs ci -m "added" a b c cvs tag -b branchtag cvs update -r branchtag touch d ; cvs add d rm a ; cvs rm a cvs ci -m "added d, removed a" cvs update -A cvs update -jbranchtag
After these commands are executed and a `cvs commit' is done, file `a' will be removed and file `d' added in the main branch.
