cvs -z9 -q -n update

to list all locally modified files and

cvs -z9 -q diff -c

to create an input file for the patch utility containing your local modifications.

You can use

cvs -z9 -q update -r AMROC_1_1

to revert your repository back to AMROC version 1.1 and

cvs -z9 -q update -r HEAD

to switch it back again from version 1.1 to the latest file releases.

If you want to have your patch included into AMROC, submit the patch file via E-Mail or use AMROC's patch browser under Select "Submit New", choose an appropriate category, upload your patch file and specify from which release it is built. Your patch will be reviewed as soon as possible.
