We do. In that case SPECS/trunk/foo.spec and foo/trunk/foo.spec have
different contents, which inevitable leads to having a mess. Which is
why I detect such cases in pre-commit and refuse any other commit to
foo.spec until the problem is resolved.

Oh, by superuser I don't mean geteuid()==0, I mean somebody who is
permitted to commits changes which aren't processed by
'mirror' (function trust_change defines who can do that).
