Maybe you could setup your system that on every update (at least of
this file) it makes a copy of the checked out file. You would then work with
the copy and on commit the original file is still intact. And on next update
your local changes get overwritten again. That way your changes don't
get committed (well, you looe all of them) but you still get updates to
the file. If your app expects a special name for this file you need to rename
it for cvs (like myfile_template or myfile_original) so the generated copy
can have the expected name.
