A.14.2 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 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 modules.)
