   Hi Larry, 

   Thanks for responding below. I knew about the Vendor-Tag 
   and Release-Tag parameters to the "cvs import", but I wanted 
   to clarify what happens when these tags remain the same, and 
   indeed the files removed locally prior to importing are not 
   detected by CVS. 

   Cheers, Bogdan

You need to do a merge after the import to let CVS detect and process
deleted files.  See the manual (particularly the last paragraph):
