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


Probably step 5 is a type mistake and meant to read "make upload FILES=..."

"make sources" only downloads the source tarballs specified within the
"sources" file.

"make upload FILES=..." and "make new-sources FILES=..." upload files
into Fedora Extras lookaside cache. The former adds files to the
"sources" file contents, the latter creates the "sources" file from
scratch.
