This is regarding a vendor branch.  When the vendor sends us a new version,
we import rather than add.  This is per Cederqvist 13.2 "Updating with the
import command" and Chapter 6 "Tracking Third-Party Sources:  Vendor
Branches" in Fogel's book.  Perhaps I have misunderstood what these two
instruct.  I thought I had to have the vendor branch checked out.  This is

There are CVS directories because we have checked out the latest version
vendor code.  Over that we unjared the source jars the vendor sent into
those very same directories.  Then we run 1)  the import command, 2) the
merge command and 3)the commit command.

Since add is not recursive, using add would be error prone not to mention
very time consuming.  Are we just supposed to unjar the source files into a
new directory and run the import command?

When there are CVS directories where?  In the directory you're
importing, the repository, or somewhere else?  If there are CVS
directories in the directory you're importing, and they're from your
repository, you should probably be using "add" rather than "import".
