The normal procedure for working on a branch is:

1) Update the module to the branch:
  cvs update -r BRANCH_1_1

2) Edit the file(s) you need to change

3) Commit the canges:
  cvs commit -m "some log messsage"

Now the edits are going to the tip of the branch.

Why do you think that you need to specify the branch to send the edit
to in the first place? Step 1 above can also be applied to single
files if you like and the following commands are still the same....
