Ankit, I modified this part a bit, added a warning why I think this
method is wrong and created a better example for the IMHO correct way to
handle updates. 

Note: I added one thing to your example (besides some minor changes).
You should make a fresh checkout with "make srpm", that you install,
modify and commit.

If you only update your local version and commit that one it might
happen that you accidentally delete modifications or updates of your
package that someone else did in cvs. That does not happen often, but
happened in the past now and then.
