                        release_tag 

Import an entire directory into the repository as a new module. Used to incorporate code from outside sources or other code that was initially created outside the control of the CVS repository. More than one release_tag may be specified, in which case multiple symbolic tags will be created for the initial revision.

The standard meaning of the common client option -k applies. Additional options are listed in Table 18-28.

-b branch

Import to a vendor branch.

-d

-I pattern

Filename patterns for files to ignore.

-m message

Use message as the log message instead of invoking the editor.

-W spec

The -k setting applies only to those files imported during this execution of the command. The keyword substitution modes of files already in the repository are not modified.

When used with -W, the spec variable is in the same format as entries in the cvswrappers administrative file (see Section 18.2.3.6).
