I think CVS is necessary.  It's not that difficult to use.
Basically, you go to the Emacs project page on Savannah, then you
click on CVS and this explains read-only anon-cvs access.

Once you have a working directory according to the instructions
there, `cd' into it and do `cvs update -dP' to fetch the most recent
changes from the server.  Do `cvs diff -u' (or `cvs diff -c'
depending on taste) to get the difference between your changed
version and the server.

After `cvs update -dP', you might get `conflicts'.  Look at the
corresponding files for `===' -- you will easily see the conflict
markers.  Merge the two versions in a way that seems sensible and
remove the conflict markers.

Maybe abbreviate-file-name is what you are looking for?
