 A.14 import--Import sources into CVS, using vendor branches
    * Synopsis: import [-options] repository vendortag releasetag...
    * Requires: Repository, source distribution directory.
    * Changes: repository.
    Use `import' to incorporate an entire source distribution from an
 outside source (e.g., a source vendor) into your source repository
 directory.  You can use this command both for initial creation of a
 repository, and for wholesale updates to the module from the outside
 source.   Tracking sources, for a discussion on this subject.
    The REPOSITORY argument gives a directory name (or a path to a
 directory) under the CVS root directory for repositories; if the
 directory did not exist, import creates it.
    When you use import for updates to source that has been modified in
 your source repository (since a prior import), it will notify you of
 any files that conflict in the two branches of development; use
 `checkout -j' to reconcile the differences, as import instructs you to
    If CVS decides a file should be ignored ( cvsignore), it does
 not import it and prints `I ' followed by the filename ( import
 output, for a complete description of the output).
    If the file `$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvswrappers' exists, any file whose
 names match the specifications in that file will be treated as packages
 and the appropriate filtering will be performed on the file/directory
 before being imported.   Wrappers.
    The outside source is saved in a first-level branch, by default
 1.1.1.  Updates are leaves of this branch; for example, files from the
 first imported collection of source will be revision, then
 files from the first imported update will be revision, and so
    At least three arguments are required.  REPOSITORY is needed to
 identify the collection of source.  VENDORTAG is a tag for the entire
 branch (e.g., for 1.1.1).  You must also specify at least one
 RELEASETAG to uniquely identify the files at the leaves created each
 time you execute `import'.  The RELEASETAG should be new, not
 previously existing in the repository file, and uniquely identify the
 imported release,
    Note that `import' does _not_ change the directory in which you
 invoke it.  In particular, it does not set up that directory as a CVS
 working directory; if you want to work with the sources import them
 first and then check them out into a different directory ( Getting
 the source).
