O.K., that is fullfilled here.

Now I did it like follows:
  cvs -d :pserver:ID at srv:/Repos import -I ! -m "Initially imported." module/newdir VENDOR REL

Then I tried it again:
  cvs -d :pserver:ID at srv:/Repos import -m "Initially imported." module/newdir VENDOR REL
This don't work.
So it seems, that the option "-I !" is the important part.

So what does it mean ?

And, thanks a lot for your help :-)
