Yes, but only the initial import. If I try to do an update import, CVS
rejects it because the vendor branch already exists (of course it does-
that's the point!).

Aaaaargh! I do NOT lose any history. All the revisions are there on the
vendor branch where I want them. I wouldn't be doing it if I were losing my
history everytime!

I still don't get what you're talking about I'm afraid...


In everybody's best interest, please do not post or CC technical questions
to me in private unless they are specifically about a macro/product of mine
that is NOT already bundled with WinCvs. I will generally forward my replies
to such posts to the CVSGUI list without further notice.
