So you aren't using cvs-import.sh to just import the srpm from upstream?  If 
you are, that stomps on changes and replaces things.  The only time you'd get 
a conflict is if the same lines changed differently, but there could be a NEW 
changelog entry in the Fedora CVS that doesn't exist upstream, upstream has a 
new line that doesn't exist in Fedora, once cvs-import.sh is done, only the 
upstream changelog entry will remain, the one in Fedora will be erased.
