Terminology is very important when trying to communicate with others. 
If you say you're "importing" files, then we all assume you mean you're
using "cvs import".  When I say you usually "add" files instead, I mean
you use the "cvs add" command.  It still isn't clear to me which you're
doing, although it doesn't really matter; there's nothing *wrong* with
using import, it's just unusual and probably a bit more complicated.

that they'll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an
occasional bleak truth? -- Calvin
