Oh ? I have never take care to this option.

Usually, when I do an import and then a merge on the head from a vendor
branch, new files are marked locally for addition before commit... So
for me, the head is not modified before merge.

It was long ago; I have to check again with new Debian cvs 1.12.13 -
maybe this convenient option "ImportNewFilesToVendorBranchOnly" is
default in Debian compilation.
