You have to do an update... which requires keeping all your local changes
first... which in my experience means that people are reluctant to do an
update until all their changes are ready... might have something to do with
my commit early, commit often development style though ;-) [small changes
are easier to merge with the accurev merge tool, so if you commit loads of
small changes and update regularly, merging is never a problem... if you
update rarely, merging is a big pain, so you update even less often]
