Sometimes, when you try to setup a CVS server you might get the error: cvs [import aborted]: attempt to import the repository

In that case is useful to know how to deal with CVSUP

To proper import a project to a CVS server you must do the following steps:

Let's say project dir is:
/home/user/project/files

We will first make a directory for cvs:

mkdir /home/user/project/cvs

Then we setup CVSROOT environment variable:
export CVSROOT=/home/user/project/cvs/CVSROOT

Then we initialize cvs by creating CVSROOT directory with the following command:

cvs init


We import the project files

cd /home/user/project/files
cvs import -m "initial import message" project vendortag versiontag
