Yes, it is.  You do *NOT* want to have the vendor branch checked out.

Exactly.  Importing the second (or third, or fourth, etc.) time is
exactly like importing the first time except that you specify a
different release tag.  You should specify exactly the same repository
directory and vendor tag as the first time, and you should import from a
new directory, not a CVS working directory.
