For uploads and complete src.rpm auto-imports:

You either prepare your update package outside CVS and then cvs-import.sh
it automatically and your done. Or you prepare your changes in your CVS
working copy, upload new binaries into the lookaside cache, and at the
end commit every changed file including the 'sources' file. 

As a test whether the full commit was fine, enter a different directory
and checkout a fresh working copy there. It should succeed in fetching the
binaries from lookaside cache and also pass simple build tests such as
'make i386' or 'make srpm' at least.
