Clarification about taking orphaned packages asked

I have just taken ownership of the recently orphaned package
'diveintopython' in pkgdb as announced on this thread .
Now, while going through  I have a question about the instructions
"If a package was last updated more than three months ago (running cvs
log -r HEAD *.spec can show you this information), you will need to
submit a review request and have the package approved by a reviewer as
if it were new to Fedora. See the package review process for more
information. There are a couple of small changes though, be sure to
submit a 'update' request to 'cvs', and before you will be able to run
the final 'make build' commands you will need to file a ticket w/
release engineering to unblock your package
The package has not received updates for over three months now (but has
been rebuilt and included in Fedora 13 etc.) and therefore I'll have to
submit a new review request as far as I understood.
What I don't get now is the part about the 'update' request to 'cvs'.
What exactly does that mean? Should I check the package out from CVS and
do a 'cvs update', or should I file an "Update request" (as opposed to
"Review request") in bugzilla against cvs, or something completely
Sorry if it sounds obvious, but I don't know what that's trying to tell
