You have to do an update since maint-guide.sgml was modified by someone
else while you were editing your checked out version:

	cvs update maint-guide.sgml

This will merge any changes that were made after you check it out into
your version.  If there are any conflicts you will have to correct them
before you can commit them.  Once the file is clean, i.e. no conflicts,
you can then commit the file.
