A.13.2 import output

import keeps you informed of its progress by printing a line for each file, preceded by one character indicating the status of the file:

U file

The file already exists in the repository and has not been locally modified; a new revision has been created (if necessary).

N file

The file is a new file which has been added to the repository.

C file

The file already exists in the repository but has been locally modified; you will have to merge the changes.

I file

The file is being ignored (see section Ignoring files via cvsignore).

L file

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.)
