A.13.1 import options

This standard option is supported by import (see section A.5 Common command options, for a complete description):

-m message
Use message as log information, instead of invoking an editor.

There are the following additional special options.

-b branch
See section 13.6 Multiple vendor branches.
-k subst
Indicate the keyword expansion mode desired. This setting will apply to all files created during the import, but not to any files that previously existed in the repository. See section 12.4 Substitution modes, for a list of valid ‘-k’ settings.
-I name
Specify file names that should be ignored during import. You can use this option repeatedly. To avoid ignoring any files at all (even those ignored by default), specify `-I !'. name can be a file name pattern of the same type that you can specify in the ‘.cvsignore’ file. See section B.7 Ignoring files via cvsignore.
-W spec
Specify file names that should be filtered during import. You can use this option repeatedly. spec can be a file name pattern of the same type that you can specify in the ‘cvswrappers’ file. See section B.2 The cvswrappers file.
