imports and file copy

I am tearing apart much of my previous configuration, and trying to 
understand cfengine better.   Not an easy task...

I'm running cfengine 2.1.10

I have a file hierarchy on a master host with the following layout

/var/cfengine/services/
                        dns/cf.dns
                        proxy/cf.proxy
                        smtp/cf.smtp
                        servicea/cf.servicea
                        serviceb/cf.serviceb
                        ...etc...

/var/cfengine/markets/
                        marketa/cf.marketa
                        marketb/cf.marketb
                        marketc/cf.marketc
                        ...etc...
/var/cfengine/os/
                linux/cf.linux
                solaris/cf.solaris
                ...etc...

Right now I'm having a problem with getting the file in 
/var/cfengine/services/servicea/cf.servicea copied to 
/var/cfengine/inputs/cf.servicea

I've created a cfagent.conf as follows

control:


        actionsequence  = ( copy )
        TrustKey        = ( true )
        TrustKeysFrom   = ( masterhost )
        Underscore_Classes = ( on )
        access          = ( root )
        EmailFrom       = ( address@hidden )
        EmailMaxLines   = ( 10000 )
        EditfileSize    = ( 800000 )
        IfElapsed       = ( 2 )
        ExpireAfter     = ( 2 )
        domain          = ( domaina )

import:

        any:: cf.groups

        # Service Specific
        dns:: cf.dns
        proxy:: cf.proxy


        # OS Specific
        linux:: cf.linux
        solaris:: cf.solaris

copy:

 
        linux::

                /var/cfengine/os/linux/cf.linux
                        dest=/var/cfengine/inputs/cf.linux
                        server=masterhost
                        trustkey=true
                        encrypt=true
                        force=true

        
        dns::
                
                /var/cfengine/services/dns/cf.dns
                        dest=/var/cfengine/inputs/cf.dns
                        server=masterhost
                        trustkey=true
                        encrypt=true
                        force=true 



my update.conf

control:

        actionsequence  = ( copy shellcommands ) 
        domain          = ( domaina )
        workdir         = ( /var/cfengine )
        policyhost      = ( masterhost )
        master_cfinput  = ( /var/cfengine/inputs )
        cf_install_dir  = ( /var/cfengine/sbin )
        SplayTime       = ( 2 ) # minutes
        ExpireAfter     = ( 2 )
        IfElapsed       = ( 2 )
        OutputPrefix    = ( "init->" )

copy:

        /var/cfengine/inputs/cfagent.conf
                dest=/var/cfengine/inputs/cfagent.conf
                server=masterhost
                trustkey=true
                encrypt=true
                force=true

        /var/cfengine/inputs/update.conf
                dest=/var/cfengine/inputs/update.conf
                server=masterhost
                trustkey=true
                encrypt=true
                force=true

        /var/cfengine/inputs/cf.groups
                dest=/var/cfengine/inputs/cf.groups
                server=masterhost
                trustkey=true
                encrypt=true
                force=true


shellcommands:

        "/var/cfengine/sbin/cfagent -i -v -f /var/cfengine/inputs/cfagent.conf"


so if I run /var/cfengine/sbin/cfagent -v -f 
/var/cfengine/inputs/update.conf   

I am expecting that it copy an updated cfagent.conf and execute it.   In 
the cfagent.conf I'm importing the cf.groups.   If it evaluates a class 
that it belongs to it should copy the relevent updated.cf file and execute 
it.

So on my master host, I delete cf.linux from /var/cfengine/inputs because 
I expect it to use copy a new copy from /var/cfengine/os/linux into 
/var/cfengine/inputs before it executes.

I get the output in the attached file.    It doesn't find cf.linux.   

What am I doing wrong?   It seems like it should work.   This is a pretty 
humbling experience...   Honest, I have read the documentation... and yet 
it still seems I don't "get" it.

Do I need to move my imports to update.conf?    Do I then need to move the 
copies to update.conf?   


Thanks for all of the help.
