module vendor_tag 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
release_tag may be specified, in
which case multiple symbolic tags are created for the initial
vendor_tag argument tracks third-party
code that may be used in your project. By using different values for
this argument, you can track the third-party code separately and
upgrade that portion of your code to a new release with a subsequent
cvs import command. Because the argument is not
optional, use some conventional value such as
“vendor” whenever the code being
imported shouldn’t be tracked separately.
release_tag argument associates a
symbolic tag with the initial version of every file being imported.
Because this argument is not optional, use some conventional value
such as “start” whenever you
don’t have a more meaningful value to provide.
The standard meaning of the common client option
-k applies. Additional options are:
Import to a vendor branch.
Use the modification date and time of the file instead of the current date and time as the import date and time. For local repository locators only.
Filename patterns for files to ignore.
Use message as the log message instead of invoking the editor. ...
