user guide: Importing: What happens to the files
The section in the user manual "1.2. darktable basic workflow / Importing" should tell the user what happens to the files during importing a folder: Does Darktable copy the images? Or does it store the path to the images?
The two use cases should be explained:

- I have a usb-stick with some images of a friend and .... I want to copy the images
