You can merge those updates (or, in fact, a different CVS branch) into
your main branch:

The HEAD revision from CVS is named "origin", not "HEAD", because git
already uses "HEAD". (If you don't like 'origin', use cvsimport's

+So, by now you are convinced you absolutely want to work with git, but
+at the same time you absolutely have to have a central repository.
+Step back and think again. Okay, you still need a single central
+repository? There are several ways to go about that:
+1. Designate a person responsible to pull all branches. Make the
+repository of this person public, and make every team member
+pull regularly from it.
+2. Set up a public repository with read/write access for every team
+member. Use "git pull/push" as you used "cvs update/commit". Beware!
+Linus says that "git push" does no locking, since it was not meant
+for multi-user repositories!
+3. Make the repository of every team member public. It is the
+responsibility of each single member to pull from every other
+team member.
+4. Read Documentation/tutorial.txt and admit that the described work
+flow is the best.
