You update the vendor branch with the "cvs import" command.  That's
the only way.  You probably want to disable the list of ignored files
and suffices during the import otherwise you miss some files.

You also have to remove files that have been deleted by sup manually
in your working copy of the sources, so keep logs of every sup run.

You don't need to quote my .signature.  Everyone has seen it by now.
Besides, it doesn't add anything to the current thread.
