I can speak freely since I'm a caveman over here :)

cvs import will do just fine, I assume. Maybe it's better that you prune 
the source tree before that. If you are willing to loose the history, 
that makes things easier, but I don't think this is a requirement.

Quite honestly, I don't see much value in the incubation process for 
Tapestry. Unfortunately, 
seems to indicate it is a requirement projects to pass through this 
incubation process, stalling the process in this precise case.
