Seems right (except for the `emcas' typo and the fact that the last command
should set emacs-unicode-2-base rather than emacs-unicode-2, but I expect
these were copy-errors and you use the right commands ;-).

Well, you'll have to create an Arch branch first.

Once the branch is setup, merging is much easier because the management of
emacs-unicode-2-base is basically all done for you.  You'll just do

   tla star-merge --three-way address@hidden/emacs--cvs-trunk--0

to merge in changes from the cvs-trunk.

No idea.  Can you try again?
Since `cvs tag handa-temp-tag' worked, I'd assume that it was just
a transient bug.  Otherwise, it means that some permissions are messed up,
which seems odd.
