Changes need to be committed back to the repository. More
importantly, because you're only doing an import, you must first check
out the project to a working copy before you can make any changes that
are able to be committed. Importing will not make the directory you
just imported into a working copy.

So, workflow would be:
* Import from your working directory into the repository
* Rename (or delete - rename is safer for now) your current working directory
* Check out your project from the repository into a working copy
that's named the same as your original working directory (this name is
more for your convenience and to reduce confusion).
* Make changes
* Commit changes as needed
* Goto "Make changes"
