Where do I get the specfile that I could copy to .spec.orig to create a diff 
in this case? E.g. following the described procedure:

cvs commit && cp -a *.spec *.spec.orig
vim *.spec
cvs up *.spec
[now changes from the repository are merged]

How can I now do a diff that shows the changes between my working copy and the 
contents of the repository?
