Thanks for the reply.

Will a cvs commit without a binary upload (e.g. when adding a package
to the depends array) result in a new binary package in the repo with
the correct information? Formulated another way, does the upload server
create a new .PKGINFO file and replace the old one while keeping the
installable package files?
