No, that wasn't the particular *DUMB* mistake I made.
(the minor earthquake was me ROFL when I realized what I'd done
and why ;)

I had not done a "Create a repository here" operation. The way I
read section 3.5 had me "thinking" that repository creation was a
part of the import operation. I know why I read it that way. I'll
have to think about how the section could or should edited.

Thank you for your help.
