that might be true. cvs commit can do merges, import cannot.

Get yourself cygwin (www.cygwin.com), learn a teenie weenie little bit 
of bash (the default linux shell, also in cygwin, available on the asf 
machines), spend an hour or two reading the cvsbook (at redbean.com 
somewhere I think), create a foney repository and try stuff out. It is 
not actually hard at all.
