I've never done that - no opportunity. But if you can, you should do so

You don't need to specify the repository once you've checked out the
cvs diff -u -r 1.18 DatabaseMetaData.java > DatabaseMetaData.diff
would have the same effect.
And if you're diff'ing against the latest revision in CVS you can omit
cvs diff -u DatabaseMetaData.java > DatabaseMetaData.diff
and just do a "cvs update" from time to time to stay current.
To generate a diff between your local copy and the current cvs
version, you can simply say
cvs diff -u > local.diff
and combine the patches against all files into a single diff file
patch will happily work on.
The whole method wont work if you are adding files of course.
