What modifications? Are you the author of the software, too?
In that case, please increase the version from 1.0 to something
newer, so the version reflects the differences between older
releases of the tarball with the same name.

Also make sure you prefer "make new-sources FILES=..." instead
of "make sources FILES=...". The former will replace the "sources"
file within CVS and not just add entries to it.

"make tag" is missing in your steps, btw.

No, the checksum of the files in the lookaside cache is taken into
account. You can have multiple files with the same file name, but a
different checksum. Which file to download is dete! rmined by the contents
of the "sources" file in the CVS directory.

Check the contents of your "sources" file in CVS.
