FYI here what I did on my Win2K system to complete the picture:

- logged into CVS as anoncvs using winCVS v1.2
- selected the xml-forrest/src directory in the explorer window at the top
- typed cvs diff -u in the bottom window
- Copy and pasted the results file by file and pasted in notedpad
- Saved in notepad as text only adding the .diff extention to the filename
- Saved the new files notification in a separate file
- Zipped all files and mailed to Steven ;-)

I guess we almost have a howto on creating and submitting pathes using 
winCVS here. :-)
