just the diffs which are applied using "patch" automatically.
Moreover, there is an option by which the patches are gzipped
before sending and unzipped on arrival, so overall the process
is quite efficient. :-)
What I value most about getting the sources via CVS, though, is
that when updating, it merges the changes into my tree and tries
to preserve whatever hacks I have done ;) So for example, I don't
need to keep tweaking feature.h.
