Question regarding merging

Could someone please confirm that my steps to performing a merge from a
branch to trunk is correct.

1- fresh checkout of the trunk into an empty sandbox
        - cvs checkout -P -kk module-name
2- update from the branch into the checked out trunk sandbox
        - cvs update -kk -P -jlatest-good-tag-from-the-branch
3- resolve and conflicts that may have occurred
4- commit all changed files back into the truck

Historically I have found conflicts that are not really conflicts due to the
Revision keyword.  This is why I specify -kk on both the initial checkout
from the trunk and also on the update from the branch.  Although the results
look correct, I am not %100 certain that this is the correct method.
