Say I take on an orphaned package which upstream is at version 1.3. The
orphaned version in FE 5 is 1.2.5 and for some reason, the version in FE
4 is 1.2. I build and commit 1.3 to rawhide and then add it to FE 5 and
FE 4. What would be nice is for the request not to do a new import, but
to drag the srpm from 1.3 and have that replace the versions in FE5 and
FE4 after ditching the existing versions.

Sorry if that was not clear - I am somewhat rushed today :-(
