To be on the safe side, perhaps we could use `cvs add' and `cvs
commit'.  I'm not sure how to create a new module with these commands,

I looked around a bit on Savannah and the emacs-wiki people have
multiple modules.  Looking at
they seem to have done it with `cvs import' because there is a vendor
branch present.

Of course none of the above commands will give us the CVS history of
the files, so these approaches are meaningless anyway if we want to
preserve that information.  (I know we could just dump it into the log
entry when importing, but I find it more risky than letting the actual
repository files be copied by an admin.)

If we don't have it, we'll have to ask the Savannah people to do it
for us.  But that shouldn't be a big obstacle.
