It actually looks as if it is just the other way round: Using *different* vendor branches on subsequent imports is what messes up the repository (unless combined with the -b option, I guess)! Currently this is exactly what you effectively _enforce_ by forbidding to use the same branch twice... > One day if there is more info stored about tags then CVS might be able > to tell the difference between a vendor tag and a branch tag, Why does there have to be a difference at all? So far I have been working happily in the belief that the only thing that's special about the vendor _branch_ created by Import was its revision number and the fact that it was implicitly declared as the default branch. Of course I could probably get the same functionality by importing my third-party sources to the trunk with the -n option (or doesn't that work anymore too? - after all it's effectively also always the same branch that I'm importing to...) and doing my own modifications on a branch but then the other way round is how I started so it would be nice if I could just continue to do so as there never was any problem with that process AFAICS.
