I can't conceive of how I would have gotten on a branch
as the only CVS commands I've ever used are:
CVSROOT=anoncvs@anoncvs.NetBSD.org:/cvsroot ; export CVSROOT
CVS_RSH=ssh ; export CVS_RSH
cvs -q checkout -P pkgsrc
but that seems to have brought down 'patch-ag'.

I'm not unwilling, but
a) I have no idea how to do that, and
b) the only possible platform I could test it on is i386.
