You shouldn't import to '.' - the import command should probably stop 
you doing that.  Give your new module a proper name, otherwise you've 
just created a very strange repository!  I'm also not 100% sure what the 
server will do if you try to do that...

See the manual for import.  These are for the traditional cvs way of 
doing imports (which still works, but I never really liked it myself).
