CVS Import

I went thru the Documentation for creating Import as well as FAQ.

This is the scenario

1) I have a sources src_1, src_2, src_3

These are basically versions 1 2 3 of same code. Some files may have changed between the 3 versions.

I am trying to import them into CVS as all the development is complete and CVS was not used during the Development of this Project.

I use
cvs import -m "Message" dir_to_import_on_cvs_repo vendor_tag release_tag_1

The first import was good. There was no problem at all.

2) Now I do a import for the second source with
cvs import -m "Message" dir_to_import_on_cvs vendor_tag release_tag_2
This import also shows no errors.

I do a cvs checkout in to another directory and in the status \ log do not see the versions as they should be seen or at least I think how they should be.

i.e.: version with release_tag_1
i.e.: version with release_tag_2
I would expect a working revision of
I do not then try the 3rd Import.

It is Red Hat Linux 7.0 cvs 1.11.1p1 (CVS Server)
client 1.11 on Solaris 5.7

Result of cvs status -v
File:           Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:
   Repository revision: path_in_repo/,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)

   Existing Tags:
        start_553                       (revision:
        gui                             (branch: 1.1.1)

2) or is there any better way of doing it.
or some point I am missing.

If I have missed out any data please do let me know I will submit it and if there is a documentation note that I am missing please let me know the address.

Thank you very much in advance and if this issue was addressed I apologize in advance but do let me know the location of the Document nevertheless.
