Submitting Kernel Source Tree to CVS

Today I attempted to submit a kernel source tree into CVS and was surprised when I found out that the …/drivers/sound/core/ was missing. Luckily, the fix was to simply include the -I ! parameter like so:

cvs import -I ! kernel/ INITIAL start

This parameter prevents CVS from ignoring folders like core. Here’s an excerpt from the cvs man page:

       -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 !'.
