The -commit list is read-only, you can't post to it.
The -dev list is for discussion of development issues or submitting
The -users list is for everything else Myth-related.
If you think the file with RSS feeds is something that needs to be added
to the CVS repository, then submit it to the -dev list. Otherwise, if
it's just a list of feeds for users to add to their MythNews setup, I'd
say the -users list would be the appropriate place.

Both commands will produce the same or similar results. The only
difference of any significance to the output is the '-d' option (see
The '-z3' option just specifies the compression level for transferring
stuff over the 'net.
The '-d' option is passed to the 'diff' program. From the 'diff' man
-d --minimal Try hard to find a smaller set of changes.
The '-u' option is also passed to 'diff'. It specifies that we want a
'unified' diff format. This is the format that Isaac & most other
developers prefer for patches as it's the most human-readable.

This will create a differences file (patch) for all CVS-controlled files
in the current directory. Use the '-R' option to recurse
subdirectories. To process only specific files, specify them on the
command line like so:
cvs diff -u file1 file2 ... fileN > patchfile

No major faux pas. Nice to have you aboard.
