Use of "cvs add" is always best.  Only use "cvs import" if you're
actually tracking third party sources and using the vendor branch
support in CVS.

Note that directories in CVS (especially in the repository) are
placeholders only.  They simply help to keep files in separate places so
that they don't all clutter the top level.

Note also that You don't add them to a branch, you just add them and
then they work for all files, on the trunk, or on branches, or both.

"cvs add directory" is currently just a quick ``hack'' to allow users to
create directories in the repository so that they may be able to add
files into those directories.
