Or, just copy the file from trunk into your 6.3 branch checkout
(note that stuff in trunk that is going to the 6.3 branch won't
have a changelog entry), update the changelog and general.ent
(if required) and commit.

Dan's method is good, if there's lots of changes. If just one
file (kde-multimedia, for example), it's easier to just copy
the file from trunk to the branch and commit.

To each his own, I suppose.
