I've read this paragraph thrice, but fail to understand it. :(  

Are you saying that keeping the individual source rpm packages for every
branch of FE in CVS is too complicated as it is done currently? Do you
want upgrades/updates in "devel" CVS to propagate to the other branch
directories automatically together with automatic build requests? =:-O

Btw, a "fresh import" is never necessary. Every update can be done
in CVS with ordinary "cvs" commands and the FE Makefile.
