Eclipse Projects from CVS as modules???


From the Eclipse to IDEA migration guide I've understood, that Eclipse projects map to IDEA modules. With that understanding I would expect I can checkout Eclipse projects from an existing CVS repo as modules into an IDEA project.

However, I fail to do so... Checking out an Eclipse project create a new IDEA project? Which would lead to a IDEA project = Eclipse project view.

What's the trick? Thanks for your help

A quick suggestion: separate check out and import to IDEA actions.

Check out all Eclipse projects first. Reject all automatic "open in IDEA" suggestions, if any.
Create IDEA project if not yet created.
Then invoke main menu / File / Import module, and point to a super-directory of checked out Eclipse modules. Follow the wizard.
