CVS claims a file is failing Up-To-Date check; what do I do?

Don't panic – it just means that the file has changed in the repository since the last time you checked it out or updated it.

Run cvs update on the file to merge in the changes from the repository. If the received changes conflict with your local changes, edit the file to resolve the conflict. Then try your commit again – it will succeed, barring the possibility that someone committed yet another revision while you were busy merging the last changes.
