3.5. Import the streamlined catalog

Import the remaining portion of the catalog using the cvs import command, with "foundation" as the module name and repository directory name. See the CVS documentation resources mentioned in Appendix Resources for more information.

When you run the import command, it will launch $EDITOR (set to 'vi' earlier), and ask for a message to go along with the import action. Whatever you see fit to write (e.g. "starting new CVS module with my foundation catalog...") is fine.

This example import command includes renaming the foundation "working" directory back to "foundation" for the import.
