    Basically the -j switch merges the specified revision (flash_v2,
but it's a branch tag so cvs takes the tips of the branch) into the
current sandbox, which for me is HEAD/tip/trunk.  So I've effectively
brought the flash_v2 changes to the tip.
    There were some conflicts, most were in the ChangeLog files. 
That's expected because cvs detected different changes in the same
space.  There were a few in the code and I'll sort through those
before I build.

    Would anybody be interested in a report on the conflicts?

    Thanks again.
