So, I have a CVS archive, and I want to start making local
modifications.  What I want to do is check out a workspace of the
original code (which I've already done).  I only have anon pserver
access, I can't get the _actual_ repository, only a workspace copy.
That's fine; I only want to pull snapshots every so often into my copy

Then, I want to create a new module using this workspace as the initial
code, on a vendor branch.

No problem, right?

Here's the trick: there are a large number of binary files in the
workspace, and I need the -kb flag on those files to be accurately
entered into my copy.

Obviously the info I need is right there, in my CVS/Entries file.  But I
don't think cvs import will grok that and DTRT for me.

Does anyone have any hints as to how to import a vendor branch from a
CVS workspace, while preserving special flags like -kb?


I'm using CVS 1.11 on a Debian GNU/Linux box.
