I've just synchronized emacs-unicode-2 branch to the trunk,
i.e, I've done something like this:

% cd .../emacs-trunk
% cvs tag handa-temp-tag
% cd .../emacs-unicode-2
% cvs update -j emcas-unicode-2-base -j handa-temp-tag
% cvs commit -m 'Sync to HEAD'
% cd .../emacs-trunk
% cvs tag -F -r handa-temp-tag emacs-unicode-2

So, now all files in emacs-unicode-2 branch have arch tags.
But, I've never used arch.  Could you tell me the exact
procedure to use arch for synchronizing?  Is it surely
easier than the above procedure for CVS?

By the way, the last step above aborted as below.

T src/s/vms4-4.h
T src/s/vms5-5.h
T src/s/windows95.h
T src/s/xenix.h
cvs server: Tagging vms
T vms/make-mms-derivative.el
cvs [server aborted]: "tag" requires write access to the repository

Could someone tell me what it means?
