Hi Richard,

thank's a lot for your answer.

I alread knew the import command, but I wasn't sure, whether it was
the appropriate way.
The disadvantage: I always have to import the entire project.
That takes a long time on large repositories if they're remote.

If there is only the import method to handle huge directory-trees,
then the second question is answered as well.
The situation is:
- Someone adds some directories and files on the working directory.
- He has no idea of CVS.
- After some days he comes to me to add/commit his new/changed files 
  and folders to the repository.
- He cannot remamber which files and folders he created (sic!).
- Now I would like to add all new files and folders (lots of them).

If I would try to add an existing file, will CVS recognize the 
existing ones? In that case I could do a "cvs add" on all files.

But how can I do that recursive through all subdirectories.
Besides of that I have to add any new directory first, before I
can add files to it.
It seems, that the import method is the only one.
Does it affect the version numbers?

Thank's again.
