--admin-user switch to `fossil import`

--admin-user switch to `fossil import`

Small patch to add -A/--admin-user flag to the `fossil import` command.  Found that I needed it, maybe someone else will find it use for it.

Small patch to add -A/--admin-user flag to the fossil import command.

Just FYI, this has been added to my todo list for early next week (almost certainly Monday).

... add -A/--admin-user flag to the fossil import command

This flag has been added to a new branch:

i don't personally have a way to test it, so am looking for feedback on whether it actually does what it's documented as doing.

Thank you.

Works for me.  Using a random git repository, I did the following
(which isn't much different from what I did before):

$ git fast-export --all | fossil import -A ams --git ../test-import-admin.fossil
Rebuilding repository meta-data...
  100.0% complete...
Vacuuming... ok
project-id: 8...b
server-id:  8...6
admin-user: ams (password is "...")

And everything looks just fine.

That's a relief, because Richard already merged it into the trunk :).
