I have a problem while importing modules to CVS. ( Also Please refer to the previous message also)

Q1) The module named "core" simply refuses to be imported in to CVS. I would be really grateful for any help or directions or workarounds to this problem. Server \ Client 1.11.1p1 on Linux as well as Solaris.

Observed : The import starts off with I ( capital I) path_to_core_module/core and then further does not import anything in that directory.

Q2) During import I find that the binary files are not correctly imported. So what I do is to complete say 2 imports and later on checkout as per the release_tag_1 ( so the sticky tag is set) then add the dir and files within it with a -kb option. Is it ok? then with release_tag-2 and so on.

Also as per the merge command suggested ( see attached previous mail ) by Larry I do not need do any merge. Am I right.

Thank you very much in advance.

It is a good idea at this point to do a merge checkout to detect any
files that were deleted between the two releases:

        cvs co -jrelease_tag_1 -jrelease_tag_2 dir_to_import_on_cvs
        cd dir_to_import_on_cvs
        cvs commit -m'merge'

If the file is exactly the same in both releases, CVS doesn't bother to
create a new revision, it just applies the new release tag to the
existing revision.
