Go to the first
section, table of contents
import keeps you informed of its progress by printing a line
for each file, preceded by one character indicating the status of the file:
The file already exists in the repository and has not been locally
modified; a new revision has been created (if necessary).
The file is a new file which has been added to the repository.
The file already exists in the repository but has been locally modified;
you will have to merge the changes.
The file is being ignored (see section Ignoring files via cvsignore).
The file is a symbolic link;
cvs import ignores symbolic links.
People periodically suggest that this behavior should
be changed, but if there is a consensus on what it
should be changed to, it doesn't seem to be apparent.
(Various options in the `modules' file can be used
to recreate symbolic links on checkout, update, etc.;
see section The modules file.)
