if this file gets modified (add/delete/rename a device), rancid should
commit the file after it show you the diff of the file.  if it isnt
committed when rancid runs, then its having some sort of problem with
the commit which should appear in the log file.

if nothing appears there, please see the CVS section of the FAQ.
